It honestly frustrates me that this is even a conversation at all, obviously Gary Sanchez should be AL Rookie of the Year. He's played in 44 games and has 19 homeruns, is batting .337, has an OBP% of .412, and has 38 RBI's. Those are absolutely ludicrous numbers for a guy that made his first start of the season in early August. He single-handily helped carry the Yankees back into the playoff picture, he literally made us competitive again, and although we probably won't make the playoffs, we were sellers at the deadline and his call up alone made us a way better team. The Yankees have now found their #3 hitter for the next ten years, almost no other team can say about a 23 year old on their roster. I know everyone is saying, "but what about Michael Fulmer," what about him, he's had a great rookie season, he's probably been one of the most consistently good starters the Tigers have, but did he turn his team into potential playoff contender single-handily after being sellers at the deadline, NO. This kid just picked the wrong year to be a rookie in the AL, not Gary's fault that he became the best catcher in the league over night. Worst case scenario, if these voters feel the absolute need to vote Fulmer ROY, at least make Sanchez and Fulmer, Co-ROY's. There has been Co-MVP's in football with McNair and Manning, so why not make these two Co-ROY's so no one can complain about the other not winning since they're both deserving of the award. All I know is that if Sanchez doesn't win the award the entire city of New York should start a riot because that would be a true travesty. Make the right decision voters, if Sanchez isn't a ROY in some form, Yankee fans will gather up and revolt, no pressure though.
