Rookies: Already Efficient in Predictability

 You really had to admit, you could have seen these Rookie of the Year picks coming from a mile away. Even questionable ones like Harper, in the end you kinda knew he'd win. Wade Miley had an amazing season, but was anybody really gonna beat Harper? Be honest.

And this guy's performance this year was so amazing in many levels, that not nominating him for the award was blasphemy. Yu Darvish and Yoenis Cespedes were cute, but they didn't equal Trout's sheer awesomeness.

This was probably the easiest Rookie of the Year race since 2001, and we know where both Ichiro and Pujols have gone since. Does this mean Trout and Harper could be potential Hall of Famers? We'll see.

Also, I don't ask for much, but HELP ME OUT HERE, OKAY?

  1. It's so early to talk about HOF... but that Trout guy is AMAZING. It's a shame that Cespedes had to compete with him, because he had such a great year.
