Tommy Hanson shuts out Cardinals Trifecta

The St. Louis Cardinals could lock up the Trifecta of Major League Baseball awards MVP, CY Young, and Rookie of the Year. That is until the Braves Tommy Hanson has pitched his way into the Rookie of the year favorite. The Cardinals and fans were hoping Colby Rasmus would end up with the ROY award.

The Cardinals seem to have the MVP locked up with Albert Pujols and the CY-Young with Adam Wainwright. Colby Rasmus was the third piece of the puzzle and is having a very solid season for the Cardinals and may even get some votes.  Colby has even inspired one fan to pay musical tribute to him on you tube which is actually pretty awesome.  (see below) The Cardinals will surely trade in the praise for a world series appearance or better yet a world series title.

 

 
I think Tommy Hanson of the Braves deserves to win the Rookie of the Year as he is a important part of the Braves rotation. He is 10-3 with a 2.65, one of the main reasons the Braves have hung around the wild card race this long. He is a young piece of the puzzle that should continue the long tradition of Braves pitching.

Either way both of these players are both a component of both teams success. It's always good to see the Rookie of the Year finalist as they are all considered the future stars of the game.
