    AL 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?

    Re: AL ROY

    I know this is a two horse race based on the media attention, but if Danny Valencia and/or Brian Matusz were in bigger markets or had bigger starts to their seasons, they'd easily be part of the conversation. There was a really nice crop of rookies in both leagues this year. Wade Davis won 12 games and nobody is even talking about him; usually that's enough to make a guy a favorite.

    I don't think he'll repeat that season he just had since his BABIP was off the charts, but Austin Jackson was pretty clearly the most productive rookie.
    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.

    Neftali Feliz (CL-Tex) got it, beating Austin Jackson 20-8 in first-place votes and 122-98 in points.

    I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou

    I would've picked Brian Matusz. The quality of his pitching in the AL East as a rookie was very impressive.
