My stats are the basic triple crown ones and whatever stat they used to make eligibility, plus fielding percentage when I see fit, and Slugging, and OPS+ again when I see fit. I wil lindicate non triple crown stats by what they are.
I will use my own standards for chooseing a rookie season The criteria is the first season a player has one or more of the following: 60 games played or 130 At Bats. For pitchers: 25 games pitched in, or 100 Innings Pitched.
"Qualifications for a rookie: Not more than 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the major leagues during a previous season or seasons, nor more than 45 days on a major-league roster during the 25-player roster limit."
These are higher per season, but allow multiple seasons part time seasons to be a rookie, but I believe that people that played the minimum amount of MLB levels have/had/ will have, no shot at winning a ROTY award. Only one player was affected by this, but, I believe I still placed him right if you took the stats from either year.
*Disclaimer, in no way am I saying that any of the following players deserved the Rookie Of The Year award. I am merley saying they had very solid campaigns and deserve some recognition. Also, don't say I am biased because there are two Cardinals on this list. Also, Cardinal fans don't get mad at me not putting in Rasmus. I do think he deserved more votes, but, I also believe that Duncan and McClellan had better years as Card's rookies. I tried to limit myself to one Cardinal because Duncan was on this list no matter what.
