    NL ROY

    The award will be announced tomorrow, 11/15, at 2 pm. There are two players that will get most of the attention ... and then there's everybody else.

    So, who would you pick?

    Posey, Latos (if he qualifies), Garcia, Heyward

    Good year for Rookies.

    For what it's worth, Latos just missed the cutoff for the qualifications to still be considered a rookie.

    "The current standard (to qualify as a rookie) of (fewer than) 130 at bats, 50 innings pitched or 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club (excluding time in military service or on the disabled list) before September 1 was adopted in 1971." - wikipedia

    Latos pitched 50.2 innings in 2009.

    Yep. Somehow I had it in my head that the cut-off was 52 innings (no idea why) and was too busy watching football to take the time to look it up.

    FWIW, I think Heyward will have the better career and be a star, but for 2010, Garcia as a guy providing 28 solid starts seems more valuable than Heyward. RF has bats. Like Doug said, position gives Posey the nod, but for me it also give Garcia the nod over Heyward.

    Agreed.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Nearly 200 more PA's of production and Heyward gets the nod from me.

    Heyward for me. Buster Posey's slash line was slightly better, but he had almost 200 less plate appearances. I was also a lot more impressed with Heyward's defense than I was Posey's.

    Heyward. If Posey had played all year it would have been his.

    FWIW Edit - Heyward wins the WAR battle by over 1 game.

    he tailed of a lot toward the end of the year, but Jaime Garcia was a stud for a while.

    He definitely deserves consideration, but I still like Heyward and Posey over him.

    Losing ROY? Buster ain't havin it.
    "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."

    Two very deserving winners.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Agreed. I was fine with either Heyward or Posey winning. You can't really go wrong there.
