Rookie of the Year Awards are out – in the NL, the Giants’ Buster Posey beat out Jason Heyward for the prize, while Neftali Feliz takes home the honors in the American League.
I’m okay with these picks – there’s a very good argument to be made for Heyward, who had more time in the majors, but I think I give Posey the edge for coming in as a rookie catcher and handling the Giants’ staff beautifully. And Feliz over Jackson is tough because he’s a reliever, whereas ex-Yankee Austin Jackson played every day for Detroit, but I think Feliz is the more impressive player.
Also, of course, he has the better name. So.
What do you guys think? Let’s hear it for the kids…
