The American League Rookie Of The Year is Wil Myers of The Tampa Bay Rays. He finished with: 23 first-place, 5 second-place, and 1 third-place votes. That comes to a total of 131 points. In the regular season, he had: 13 home runs, 53 runs batted in, and a .293 batting average. That’s quite impressive. The next closest vote-getter was Jose Iglesias of both The Boston Red Sox and The Detroit Tigers, who finished with 80 points. Apparently, he’s good, just not as good as Myers.
The National League Rookie Of The Year is Jose Fernandez of The Miami Marlins. He finished with 26 first-place and 4 second-place votes. That comes to a total of 142 points. In the regular seasons, he had: 12 wins, a 2.19 earned run average, and 187 strikeouts. That’s also quite impressive. The next closest vote-getter was Yasiel Puig of The Los Angeles Dodgers, who finished with 95 points. I think he’s just as deserving of Rookie Of The Year as Fernandez, but, there can only be one.
Now, there’s a bigger point discrepancy between the American League vote-getters than there is between the National League vote-getters. However, I feel that the National League vote-getters made a stronger case for why they deserved to win. Therefore, Jose Fernandez was more deserving of Rookie Of The Year than was Wil Myers.
