I don't believe there is any question Posey deserved it. I don't believe I've ever seen anyone have such an outstanding rookie season, both offensively and defensively, certainly not any rookie who played such an important role in a World Series-winning team. Of course, the votes were cast before the postseason, although in this case that could have hurt the validity of the award with the two top contenders facing each other in the NLDS.

While I probably would never include a relief pitcher on my Rookie of the Year ballot, if I had a vote, Feliz was a huge part of the Rangers getting to the World Series, even if he pitched less than 70 innings.
