2008 SB Nation Rookie Of The Year Awards

Congratulations to Geovany Soto and Evan Longoria, the 2008 SB Nation baseball Rookies of the Year. All this week, we'll be announcing the results of SB Nation balloting, in advance of the MLB awards.

Schedule:

Tuesday: AL & NL Managers of the year
Wednesday: AL & NL Cy Young Awards
Thursday: AL & NL MVP

This is the third year we've done this, and if you weren't here last year, here's how it works: each SB Nation baseball blog was allotted two ballots -- just as there are two BBWAA writers in each major league city who vote.

The second BCB ballot went, as last year, to Mike, who draws all the great cartoons here. 19 total ballots were returned from the NL bloggers, 17 from the AL bloggers. Here's how the voting went, with 5 points for a first-place vote, 3 points for second, 1 point for third:

National League 1st 2nd 3rd Points
Geovany Soto 18 1 - 93
Joey Votto - 10 8 38
Jair Jurrjens 1 6 6 29
Edinson Volquez - 1 - 3
Jay Bruce - 1 - 3
