    The Rangers did OK in that Teixeira trade with the Braves.

    I may be biased, but Austin Jackson should have been the AL winner.

    But a split of the rookie awards isn't bad.

    Feliz wins the writers, Jackson won the Sporting News award.

    Both are definitely deserving.

    Someone left Posey completely off the ballot. Trying to rig it for Hayward?

    Looks like Hayward was left off a ballot as well. Double rigging?

    Buster Posey received 20 first-place votes. The guys who finished fourth through ninth received 16 VOTES. Yet someone thinks that one of these people was more deserving of the award than Posey. Another of them thinks that one of these people was more deserving of the award than Hayward.

    It gets better. Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette was the only writer to leave Hayward off the ballot. He thinks Neil Walker and Jose Tabata had better years.

    Walker: 12 HR, .296/.349/.462, 2 steals
    Tabata: 4 HR, .299./.346/.400, 19 steals
    Heyward: 18 HR, .273/.393/.456, 11 steals

    Walker you could make an argument. It would be a losing argument, especially considering Heyward is 20 and doing the same thing Walker's dong at 24, but you could present a case. Tabata is a joke of a vote.

    SI is not the only one who needs copy editors - from the ESPN story:

    In the National League, Giants catcher Buster Posey's 20 first-place votes helped him outpoint Justin Hayward as top rookie.

    Player Points 1st-place votes
    Buster Posey,
    Giants 129 20
    Justin Hayward,
    Braves 107 9
    Jamie Garcia,
    Cardinals 24 1

    The age of the players is meaningless, but it is an absolute joke to put either of those guys ahead of Heyward.

    If one guy is four years younger doing the same thing, he's got the advantage.
