AL Rookie-of-the-Year

Entering 2007, the rookie hype was enormous. The Devil Rays' Delmon Young and the Royals' Alex Gordon were expected to run away with the award ex-Daisuke Matzusaka. Six weeks into the season, there is some question about pre-annointment ceremonies.

Below is a list of AL rookies who are playing regularly. Needless to say pre-season prognostications have been off. This looks like Matzusaka's award with no competition unless that guy at the end of the list.....
