The Top Five Forgotten MLB Rookie Of The Year Candidates(NL Version)

My stats are the basic triple crown ones and whatever stat they used to make eligibility, plus fielding percentage when I see fit, and Slugging, and OPS+ again when I see fit. I wil lindicate non triple crown stats by what they are.

I will use my own standards for chooseing a rookie season The criteria is the first season a player has one or more of the following: 60 games played or 130 At Bats. For pitchers: 25 games pitched in, or 100 Innings Pitched.

"Qualifications for a rookie: Not more than 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the major leagues during a previous season or seasons, nor more than 45 days on a major-league roster during the 25-player roster limit."

These are higher per season, but allow multiple seasons part time seasons to be a rookie, but I believe that people that played the minimum amount of MLB levels have/had/ will have, no shot at winning a ROTY award. Only one player was affected by this, but, I believe I still placed him right if you took the stats from either year.

*Disclaimer, in no way am I saying that any of the following players deserved the Rookie Of The Year award. I am merley saying they had very solid campaigns and deserve some recognition. Also, don't say I am biased because there are two Cardinals on this list. Also, Cardinal fans don't get mad at me not putting in Rasmus. I do think he deserved more votes, but, I also believe that Duncan and McClellan had better years as Card's rookies. I tried to limit myself to one Cardinal because Duncan was on this list no matter what.
