All week we'll be announcing the results of our SB Nation Baseball Award Winners. We followed the same format as the "real" BBWAA system, with each team blog getting two ballots. Following that system, I only voted on AL awards.
The Rookie of the Year voting probably has the most interest for you, as our Eric Hosmer emerged as a serious candidate. Alas, he came up short. Here are the American League results:
I voted 1) Pineda, 2) Ackley, 3) Hosmer. I think I'd rather have Hosmer over the two Mariners I voted above him, but in 2011, I think Hosmer was the third best. Ackley-Hosmer 2/3 is definitely debatable, basically the difference is in the UZR numbers and in positional value. I take both of those seriously. However, Ackley played just 90 games. If I had to vote again, I'd probably switch them.
If you are curious, here are the NL results:
Kenley Jansen is a baseball player and not a 16 year old high school girl in California? Odd.
