Re: 2012 NL Rookie of the Year?
Mez probably won't get nearly as many at-bats as Harper so I would imagine Harper would put up better numbers, and Cozart would probably only be ROTY in a year featuring no other notable rookies.
Harper has to be the early favorite, but should Julio Teheran or Trevor Bauer get called up and dominate, it could be there's for the taking.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
