2010 SB Nation Rookie Of The Year Awards

Yesterday, MLB announced its Rookie of the Year awards; they went to the Giants' Buster Posey and the Rangers' Neftali Feliz, both key contributors to pennant winners.

Today, we announce the results of the SB Nation voting and ... neither one of them won our awards; both finished second in close and split votes. Jason Heyward, the preseason favorite to win the award, took the SB Nation NL vote and the Tigers' Austin Jackson won the AL award.

As has been my practice in previous years, BCB's cartoonist, Mike, received the second BCB ballot. Voting was, as in prior years, for a first, second and third place finisher and points awarded on a 5-3-1 scale. As a NL site, BCB voted for National League players only. Here are the two BCB ballots:

Al: 1) Buster Posey 2) Jason Heyward 3) Starlin Castro Mike: 1) Buster Posey 2) Jason Heyward 3) Gaby Sanchez

Admittedly, my Castro vote was a homer pick, but I wasn't the only one who thought he deserved some recognition for his fine rookie season. The remaining schedule for SB Nation awards is:

Tuesday, Nov. 16: NL Cy Young Award (will post this afternoon) Thursday, Nov. 18: AL Cy Young Award Monday, Nov. 22: NL Most Valuable Player Award Tuesday, Nov. 23: AL Most Valuable Player Award

We did not do Manager of the Year voting this year. Full results after the jump.
