    Nitpicky, I know, but why does it need to be the Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year Award? Wouldn't the Jackie Robinson Award suffice? I mean, we don't call it the "Cy Young Pitcher of the Year Award" or the "Conn Smyth Most Valuable Player Award."

    The Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year Award sounds tacky. If you're going to name it after the guy, name it after the guy.

    And yes, I know, I sound like a nitpicking bastard.

    Isn't the Jackie Robinson addition fairly new? Probably left it combined so as not to create confusion.

    Everyone knows what the Cy Young is, just like the Conn Smythe, since they've been around so long. I imagine in time, it will be called just the Jackie Robinson Award.

    Beat me to it. That was my thought as well. I'm not sure if the casual fan would know what the Jackie Robinson AWard is for.
