Last year it was called the Eric Hinske Award. I decided to change that based on the fact that Hinske has been to four postseasons in a row including three World Series. It’s the guy who looks great as a rookie, but soon we’ll discover that he’s going to flop. Ben Grieve of course won the Rookie of the Year Award. So did Angel Berroa and Bobby Crosby. It’s that rookie who sizzles in his first year and then we look back ten years later and say “Would he be dead if Baseball Reference didn’t exist?” This was a wonderful season overall for rookies, so it’s a good pool of players to pick from. Here are the nominees:

Madison Bumgarner


Wade Davis

Stephen Strasburg

And the winner is Wade Davis. Pitchers are an easier target than hitters, so naturally three pitchers were brought on here. If Strasburg happens to be a flop (I don’t think he will), he wouldn’t be in the Ben Grieve category anyway. He would be more in the category of someone like Jay Williams (great college player that got unlucky) or Tony Conigliaro. Bumgarner is a definite candidate considering that he has not shown the velocity he had a few years ago – but he has been effective anyway this season. Davis’ season looked a lot better on the surface than it was when we dig a little deeper. His ERA was in the low 4s, but his FIP was in the high 4s. His K/9 hovered at 6 below the league average. He benefitted from playing on a good team, but if he can continue what he did next season it will be surprising.

    Pat Listach feels slighted.

    That goes back to the days when I was solely a baseball fan because of those things which Goose Joak ultimately has a monopoly over today – baseball cards. When fantasy wasn't real. He would definitely get a shout out if I ever remembered seeing him play =)

    Also, Jerome Walton…

    Another guy who might be worthy of a nomination: Danny Valencia.
