Michael Pineda, AL Rookie of the Year?

The staff at recently voted on all the associated hardware that the Baseball Writers of America will ultimately choose. The runaway choice for American League Rookie of the Year was the M's Michael Pineda (despite the stinker last night). It was interesting that Dustin Ackley didn't get any votes, but as Dave Cameron points out in the post, the voting on the AL ROY is likely to be a pretty interesting one as there are a lot of good candidates and nobody really emerged as the dominant choice. Had Lawrie played in more than 40-odd games, he probably would have been that guy, but hey - maybe Pineda will will have some hardware to show for it.

For what it's worth, I also voted for Pineda in the poll. Total homer.
