ROY Awards

The results are in and the 2006 MLB Rookies of the Year are Hanley Ramirez of the Marlins and Justin Verlander of the Tigers.

In case you missed it - here are two very good looks at the AL race.

The first is a roundtable of writers from the cities of the top candidates and all of them correctly picked Velander as the winner.

The second is a look at the how the case for Jon Papelbon went from slam dunk to DL. Papelbon foresaw the results in the AL:
“I think Verlander’s got it,” Papelbon said prior to the Red Sox season finale Oct. 1. “If Verlander doesn’t win it, then I’d be very, very surprised. He’s [been a] great pitcher this year for the Detroit Tigers and I think me getting hurt is really going to affect those voting.”
