After another quality start, against the Yankees no less, has Danks vaulted his way into early contention for Rookie of the Year? I think that if he makes 30 starts this year he will certainly be considered.

What kind of numbers have recent rookie pitchers had in winning ROY? Right now Danks has a 4.10 ERA and a 2-4 record that should be AT LEAST 3-3, if not 4-3. I think an ERA in the 3s and 12-14 wins would definitely put Danks in serious (top 5) contention. Thoughts?

Its tough to say without looking at the competition Im not really familiar with the AL rookies. Is Delmon Young still rookie elgible. I know Alex Gordon and Billy Butler in KC can both be very good but atleast Gordon so far seems to be struggling.

Young is eligible, as is Reggie Willits who is having a solid year. Even though he's not really a rookie, Matsuzaka is in the race for it as well.

With pitchers, it's usually a matter of games won that inspires that ROY voters. You might be impressed with the way Danks looks, but most of the ROY voters aren't watching White Sox games.

If he keeps pitching like he has in his last few starts, he's going to get noticed.

If Dice K is over .500 he is the ROY.

If he loses all of his games 1-0, he won't be named Rookie of the year, even if he does get noticed. He has to win.

He will have to outperform Matsuzaka by a good margin to get the award.

I almost forgot about Elijah Dukes, he's eligible as well. I really hope Matsuzaka doesn't get it, I want a real rookie to get the award. All the players from Japan that come to the US may be rookies to the majors but they've been playing for some time now in the Japan League.

If he keeps pitching like he has, he's going to win a lot of games. The Sox are not going to bat .220 all year.

Even if Dice K has an ERA over 5.00, with the East coast hype machine behind him...he'll win ROY.

If he keeps pitching the way he has I think definately he has a shot but like some previous posters have said he needs the W's. Thats just the nature of the beast.

I think Matsuzaka has ROY locked up unless he really falls apart. Not happy about it, but that's the way sports mediodts vote.
