Congratulations to Ryan Braun and Dustin Pedroia, the 2007 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 MVP
Friday: NL MVP

This is the second 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 AL bloggers, 21 from the NL 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
Ryan Braun 13 6 2 85
Troy Tulowitzki 7 9 3 65
Hunter Pence - 4 9 21
Kevin Kouzmanoff 1 - - 5
James Loney - 1 1 4
Micah Owings - 1 1 4
Chris Young - - 2 2
