New, 3 comments

MLB announced that Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan and A's closer Andrew Bailey were awarded the Rookie of the Year honors for the 2009 season. 

Coghlan edged out Phillies pitcher J.A. Happ while Bailey edged Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus, who beat Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello by one point for the second spot. 

SB Nation - Baseball writers voted Tommy Hanson in the NL and Andrus in the AL, with Coghlan finishing fourth and Bailey finishing second. 

Do you guys think that Coghlan and Bailey were the right picks for the awards?
