Year in review: Nationals rookie of the year

Manager Jim Riggleman called the emergence of Ian Desmond the bright spot of the season -- but what about Stephen Strasburg?

I'd say Thomas Ian Nichols in "Rookie of the Year" would be more deserving than any of the names listed above.

Ian could have been but when one person almost has as many errors as a MLB team combined that is not ROY material.

Storen. Not ready to be a closer yet, perhaps, but was more than adequate coming out of the bullpen.

Either Storen or Strasburg. I can't see an ROY with 34 errors and on-again, off-again hitting? He was the only National Oliver Perez was able to get out on Sunday.

Desmond played all year and got increasingly better. He played with enthusiasm and although he made an inexcusable number of errors, he did show signs of getting better. I predict sub 20 errors next year. Strasburg would have won hands down if he had remained healthy. Storen and Bernadina were rookies, but not close to rookies of the year.

@Batboy: I'm a Nat's fan, but that's pretty darn funny!

"I predict sub 20 errors next year [for EEEEEEEEEEan Desmond]."

That's possible only if he plays fewer than 75 games.

Thanks Batboy05.
