2017 Awards: Rookies

Following on my thoughts on the 2017 Manager of the Year Award here’s a look at my picks for Rookie of the Year. It’s the easiest pick.

National League

Cody Bellinger

The nod goes to Cody Bellinger, Dodgers first baseman. He led the National League rookies in homers, which always gets the writer’s attention, and was instrumental in the long streak the team had at mid-season.

American League

Aaron Judge

You expected anyone other than Aaron Judge? He propelled the resurgent Yankees to a wild card slot and set a new record for home runs by a rookie. Of course he also struck out a ton of times.

Both these should be unanimous. Someone out there will probably be in a snit and keep it from being so. They will be wrong.
