In the NL, we have Hanley Ramirez beating out Ryan Zimmerman in a close race for the annual Angel Berroa Rookie of the Year Award. Congratulations, Hanley. You took your team of misfits and social outcasts where nobody thought you could go: into the back of James Earl Jones' back yard to retrieve the lost baseball with Babe Ruth's signature on it. Wait, was that the 2006 Marlins or the climax of the Sandlot? I get them confused.
In the AL, Justin Verlander is the man taking home the prized trophy with Berroa's smiling visage laser-etched on the side. In response, Verlander wished to thank the Tigers organization, his family and the tattered remains of Francisco Liriano's left elbow. Congratulations, Justin! May this shining trophy act as a soothing balm on the wounds of a World Series loss to a Jeff Weaver led-Cardnials club. Also, I hear it plays Blu-Ray.
