Re: Pedroia & Braun win ROY awards
While I'm sympathetic to the argument that a quality all-around SS is about the finest thing you can have in the game of baseball, I still would have voted for Braun.
He's cut from the Albert Pujols, Miguel Cabrera mold. Is he going to have a long term future at 3B? Probably not, but his bat terrorized opposing pitchers from the moment he stepped into the league until the last day of the season. He was a wrecking ball.
Tulowitzki had a fine debut. He's a very Jim Fregosi type of player, but I'd have voted to hand the hardware to the scary hitter.
