SBNation Awards -- Rookie of the Year

New, 18 comments

The SBNation baseball bloggers did balloting at the end of the season to select MVPs, ROYs, Cy Youngs, and Managers of the Year from each league, with A.L. bloggers voting on the A.L., and N.L. bloggers on the N.L.

There were two ballots per team, and for blogs with just one blogger -- such as LSB -- we recruited a non-SBNation blogger to vote. For the Rangers, Jamey Newberg was kind enough to participate.

Today we are announcing the winners of the Rookie of the Year...so congratulations to Justin Verlander and Hanley Ramirez, who are the first-ever winners of the SBNation Rookie of the Year Award.

Below are tables, reflecting the details of the balloting for each league. Managers of the Year will be announced tomorrow.
