Let’s take a look at the NL ROY results, released yesterday. If you missed it, here is how the voting went:
I’m not surprised that Chris Coughlan won as much as I am Colby Rasmus got one vote. ONE. For third place. As I noted in the Gold Glove post, Rasmus played the best defensive CF of anyone in the NL last season. You’d think he’d garner more than one vote.
For argument’s sake, what’s the WAR ranking of the votees?
Again, not saying Chris Coughlan was a bad choice, or that Colby Rasmus deserved it more. HOWEVER, perhaps the voting for ROY didn’t take into account how much each player contributed to the team.
