Ryan Braun Wins NL Rookie of The Year!

Kudos to Ryan Braun!! Braun was named the National League Rookie of the year, edging out Colorado's Troy Tulowitzki by two votes. It was one of the closest votes in Major league history. Both rookies had phoenominal numbers and played major roles in the success of their prospective team.

Braun hit .324, knocked out 34 homers, drove in 97 Runs and set the National League Rookie slugging percentage with a .634 % mark.

It's a shame that one of these talented rookies had to come in second place in the voting.
I'm pretty partial, though........... Braun was the man! He made an immediate impact upon being called up and became one of the best #3 hitters in the game.

I'm looking forward to seeing Braun and Fielder terrorize National League pitchers for years to come.

The '08 season is just around the corner. I can't wait to get out to the Miler Park to see these young studs carry the Crew to its first divisional title in decades.

What say you?
