I had such a good time doing the awards last year that I figured we'd definitely do it again this season, and now's the time. The season's over and everything's ready to go.
The ballot itself is under the Read More link at the bottom of this post. Just fill it out, put it in an email, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org -- that's it, clean and easy.
If your ballot is silly I won't count it, like last year, but I also didn't get any that were stupid last year, so thankfully I didn't have to disregard anyone. This is not just for O's fans or CC.com regulars, either -- everyone can vote, and everyone can send a friend over to vote. Hell, if you're just popping by randomly and don't even have an account here, feel free to fill out the ballot and vote. The more good voters the better.
Last year I started posting the results on October 22, which was the first day of the World Series. I'll do the same this season, so you have until then to get a ballot in. Have fun, and vote!

AL Rookie of the Year: Huston Street, Athletics
NL Rookie of the Year: Ryan Howard, Phillies

HOW TO FILL OUT THE BALLOT: Something like "1. Cal Ripken, BAL" or "1. Cal Ripken" will work. Don't just put a last name. I could probably tell what you mean, but if you say like, "Rodriguez" or "Gonzalez" or "Smith," that could get difficult.
