SBNation and Purple Row: Rookie of the Year

The NL and AL Rookie of the Year awards are going to be handed out by the BBWAA next week (11/14), so to make sure we beat them at their own game, SBNation and Purple Row have each done their own voting on the Rookie of the Year awards.

It was a tough year for voting, as there were many fine candidates, such as Daniel Descalso, Trevor Plouffe, and Aneury Rodriguez, but between all of our mixed expertise, we pulled together to make some coherent voting.
