If the Cuban Missle keeps firing at this pace can he be the 6th CWS ROY and the first since 1985??

Luis Aparico 1956
Gary Peters 1963
Tommie Agee 1966
Ron Kittle 1983
Ozzie Guillen 1985
Alexi Rameriz 2008??

Alexei buddy. And yes, I think it is a strong possibility if he keeps it up.

He won't win because of two words:

Evan Longoria

I have to admit that I would give it to Longoria at this poiint, but if Alexei continues his current pace, he might make it a photo finish.

He's gonna get beaned in a future Red Sox/Rays game in the hand and be out for 2 months, leaving Alexei as the favorite to win the ROY.

I'm kind of drawing a blank though as to other rookies that are having standout years. Who else is out there besides Longoria?

I agree. It's way to easy to miss the second "I" in missile, so I propose we give him the nickname TCM...:D:

Top four rookies are probably Longoria, Ramirez, Ellsbury, and Chamberlain.

Is Ellsbury considered a rookie? I thought he had enough PAs last year to disqualify him for this year.

Because this is how Ken Rosenthal spells it (and he can't be wrong)

Longoria is putting up the sexy numbers HR's and RBI's IMO Alexei would have to do alot more then what he is right now.

Ellsbury is a rookie.

Ellsbury is a rookie.

Then Alexei probably finishes third. Ellsbury is leading the league in SBs and playing superb CF.

Another guy who at this point should get some consideration (but won't because no one knows who he is) is Armando Galarraga on Detroit. 7-2 with a 3.40 ERA. Who knows where they'd be without him stepping up the way he has with Willis and Bonderman out.

Ah well. At the beginning of the year, none of us dreamed we'd be having this conversation about Alexei. I'm glad he's able to contribute on a consistent basis. This is some of the best "learning on the fly" I've seen in quite some time. Probably since Jenks during the stretch run of '05.

Ellsbury isn't really tearing it up (.271/.346/.385). And Joba just moved into the rotation so he has a long way to go to prove himself. Nice start - but he has yet to go deep enough in a game as a SP to contend for this.

Longoria is hitting .268/.343/.521. It has to be him at this point in time. Alexei has been solid for the Sox, but Longoria has been much better.

Ellsbury's offense is medicore and getting worse. No way should he be a cinch for ROY

ALEXEI

There is a great crop of rookies this year. I think his poor start and limited AB's in May will easily cost him. Talent wise I think he is right there with Ellsbury and Longoria. What a great sign, I hope he plays here until he retires.

I agree. That's why I think he will finish second.

People still spell Buehrle's name wrong, and he's been here for years...so it probably won't change.

Carolina:

In 1963 both Pete Ward and Gary Peters were named Rookie Of The Year. It depended on what organization you quoted from.

The first time teammates were named to that award.

He probably won't win ROY, but who cares? I just REALLY enjoy watching this kid play the game.

He plays a well above average infield, has a great arm, makes smart plays, and is unselfish at the dish with runners on base.

How about that homerun last night to tie it up in the 10th with 2 outs?!, he got all 95 lbs into that one! Seriously though, it says alot about that kids swing to me that he hit that one out. It actually looked like he was a touch under the ball to me.

I think he did get under it but that uppercut finish of his gave it just enough to sneak over the fence. His swing,wrists and build just scream Soriano.

In 1969, Carlos May of the Sox was having a great rookie season. It was August, and he had 18 home runs through 100 games. He was hitting a solid .281 (this was a year after Carl Yastrzemski led the American League with a .301 average and Danny Cater was second with a .290 average). The other outstanding rookie in the league that season was Lou Piniella. May went to Camp Pendleton for two weeks of military service, which many players had to do in those days, and he suffered what people thought would be a career-ending injury. Piniella was named the BBWAA American League Rookie of the Year, although May was voted The Sporting News American League Rookie of the Year.

There is a lot of season left. I have never seen a rookie who seemed to be such a great all around baseball player, doing so many things exceptionally well as Alexei Ramirez. He didn't have hype coming into the season, with many writers believing he wasn't ready for the majors.

But the major reason the writers will not vote for Alexei Ramirez for the award is that they won't be able to spell his name.

The national baseball media continues to diss the sox..which is great for them to stay off the radar and just keep winnning. I heard some guy late last nite from Scout.com saying that Burls will regress now that he is back against AL teams and the sox will quickly fall back to the charging tigers.
Rosenthal has also said the Sox are pretenders...we shall see.

Alexei might get a few votes, but Longoria (and his .265 BA) or Ellsbury will win.

...

Here's the trick:

When he is on, an opposing hitter could be swinging a hurley.
But the MLB and not the GAA is where you'll see Mark Buehrle.
Fans aren't screaming Boo-urns; they're screaming Bue-hrle.

(I didn't get the meter right, but it was off the top of my head.)

For Ramirez, just remember:

I before E except after C
Or when sounding like A as in neighbor or weigh
Or when describing the special baseball talent, the Cuban Missile, Alexei.

(That was weak, but you get the point.)

I used to have a bunch of online sports gambling accounts, but ive since umm taken out all my winnings. Anyone want to look up the odds on Alexei as ROY? I'd think longoria would be the heavy favorite.
