No surprise for either choice, both of whom are very deserving,IMO. Though considering how much attention he got all throughout the season, you would think Jason Heyward had it wrapped up at some point.

I'm a Giants homer but I think Heyward deserved it. Almost 200 more PA and 34 more games is substantial considering their % stats were comparable. Both were good at defense...Posey usually playing the tougher position but also playing the easiest one for 30 games. Oh well.

Starting from Opening Day actually hurt Heyward. He had that great start but then slumped in June and hit the DL until mid-July. By that time, Posey was up and ripping the ball for the rest of the year.

You can definitely make a case for Heyward and I know only the regular season is counted in ROY voting, but considering what we saw in the postseason, I think voters made the right choice in Posey.

Really was surprised Castro of the Cubs didn't get a 1st place vote from someone. Pretty good hitting for a kid and OK fielding. 10th in the league is great for a 20 year old.

But his fielding was a bit suspect. He is going to get so much better. I am sure you will all enjoy him on the Yankees in a few seasons when they buy him to replace The Captain.

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

I was hoping Heyward would get it being a Braves fan but I can't deny that Posey also deserved it. Granted, Heyward started from day 1 in the season but Posey had identical numbers to Heyward and would have produced more RBI's and other numbers if he had the same amount of plate appearances. Also, if Posey started at the very beginning of the year, I would also put him in MVP consideration based on how well the Giants did when he played. Congrats to both ROY.

It's a weird season in that there's no favorite on paper from the gate like there's been in years past. Which makes the start of this season unique from the last few years of REDSOXYANKEEANDEVERYONEELSE billing. Anyway...
