There is no way a rookie closer will win over an everyday player. Especially an everyday player playing at shortstop.

"Bailey’s odds are better in the AL. Another Oakland Athletics pitcher, Huston Street(notes), won in 2005, a season in which, like this one, there was no clear frontrunner for the award. "

How is andrus not a clear front runner. Look at the columnist on the bottom. 3 out of 4 picked andrus, and what do you know the 1 that didn't is the columnist who wrote that article. 3 out of 4 columnist selecting him is pretty clear to me.

I believe Andrus could eventually be the best baseball player in the league. Kinda like a Jeter but better.

We need to get him to get a decent BA before we go throwing those sort of accolades around.

I know I'm jumping the gun a little bit, but man just watching him play is awesome. He also gets timely hits when it matters.

He will have 20+ errors, which is not good, but he'll probably still get it. A good SS hitting .275-.280 is pretty strong.

One day being the "Best player in the league"? I think that's a bit of a stretch.

He'll have to be the best player on the team first.
