The Sportsblog Network hands out yearly Awards just like the baseball does, except we are smarter about it. At least we try to be.
For NL Rookie of the Year, our pick this season is Ryan Braun of the Brewers. Braun came in first with 85 points. Troy Tulowitzki of the Rockies came in second with 65 points, and Hunter Pence of the Astros came in third with 21 points. Others receiving votes were Kevin Kouzmanoff, James Loney, Micah Owings, Chris Young the Outfielder, Yovani Gallardo, and Tim Lincecum.
My own ballot was Tulowitzki, Braun, Pence.
