Quote:
Evan Longoria won the American League Rookie of the Year award Monday by unanimous vote, and Geovany Soto ran away with the NL honor.

Following a season of breakthroughs for the AL champion Rays, Longoria became the first Tampa Bay player to win a national award from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. The power-hitting third baseman received all 28 first-place votes, making him the league’s first unanimous rookie winner since Nomar Garciaparra in 1997.


Quote:
Soto, the steady catcher with pop who helped the Cubs win the NL Central, got 31 of 32 first-place votes. The other went to Cincinnati’s Joey Votto.
“It was really emotional,” Soto said from Puerto Rico. “I feel very honored.”


Soto owes his award to playing the Pirates this season... .381 avg, 3 HR's 18 RBI, 10 2B's, 12 Runs

Take away his games against the Pirates he goes from hitting .285 to .271...
