Shingo Takatsu officially fell an unfortunate 27 votes shy of being unanimously crowned AL Rookie of the Year.

Crosby, Bay Win Rookie of the Year (AP) (http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=545&ncid=716&e=10&u=/ap/20041108/ap_on_sp_ba_ne/bbo_rookies_of_the_year)

Crosby received 27 of 28 first-place votes in balloting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America for 138 points. Chicago White Sox (news) closer Shingo Takatsu received the other first-place vote and finished second with 44 points, followed by Baltimore pitcher Daniel Cabrera with 29 points.

Strike up the gong.

That's BS. Shingo is the youngest player in the MLB according to rotoworld.com

If Crosby got 27/28 1st place votes and Shingo got 1, then is Shingo 2nd best Rookie of the Year?

-65 is actually the MPH on Shingo's best changeup

Hey!!! Hey!!! The Soxbune Propaganda Machine is back up and working now -- It's a banner day folks!!! This is what the Cubbies have felt all these years.

P.S. I'm honest to god not sure if I'm being sarcastic here.

It should be noted that Ross Gload finished 7th in the ROY voting, as well.

It was 7th. He got one 2nd place vote and one 3rd place vote.

A player shall be considered a rookie unless, during a previous season or seasons, he has (a) exceeded 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the Major Leagues; or (b) accumulated more than 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club or clubs during the period of 25-player limit (excluding time in the military service and time on the disabled list). 18 games with the Cubs in 2000, and another 26 with the Rockies in 2002. All but ten of his games over those two stints were during September (that may vary slightly from the number of days on the active roster, but probably not by much), so he still qualified.
