The Suspense Was Killing Me

Geovany Soto and Even Longoria are the Rookies of the Year. If you're surprised by this news, I suggest that you think long and hard about how big a baseball fan you really are.

Why are there 4 more voters for the NL award than the AL award? Is that because there are two voters for each team in each league so that there are 28 voters in the AL (14 x 2) and 32 voters in the NL (16 x 2)?

I think that's correct, Doug.

Doug said...

Thanks, Craig. Asymmetry bothers me but I've never seen anybody explain it.

How the heck did Votto get only one first-place vote? I won't argue that Soto shouldn't have won (though I could), but it definitely should have been a lot closer. Ridiculous.

Marty McKee said...

Of course, seeing how non-informed the voters obviously are (Volquez?)...

The two best picks IMO.
