Re: ROY, Cy Young, MVP
I found this paragraph that should clear up the question of who is eligible to be a rookie.
"Gonzalez would be at the forefront of candidates, but he took 150 at-bats with the Rangers last season -- 20 more than the 130 at-bats that eliminate rookie status. For a pitcher, it's 50 innings. Another disqualification is more than 45 days of service time with clubs at the 25-player limit."
So unless Johnson was sitting on the end of a bench for over a month without pitching, he would be eligible. I just don't think he's going to win it.
