Congrats to Chris Coglahn for winning the National League Rookie of the Year!

He edged Phillies pitcher JA Happ 105 points to 94. Cogs batted .321 with 9 homers and 31 doubles in 128 games, with 84 runs and 47 RBIs. He led all NL rookies in batting average, runs, hits (162), total bases (232), and on-base percentage (.390). He was knocked for his defense, but few people realize he was a 2B in the minors, played ONE GAME in left (without a fly ball coming his way) and then was called up. He now has an entire offseason to learn the position.

He's the third Marlin to win, following Hanley Ramirez and Dontrelle Willis.
