Rookie of the Year: Evan Longoria and Geovanny Soto

The American League and National League Rookies-of-the-Year will be announced later today.  Before that occurs, here are the results of the voting by Fake Teams readers.

The winner in the AL is Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays and the NL winner is Geovanny Soto of the Chicago Cubs.  Neither is a surprise, and both won handily over the competiton.

What will be interesting to see how how different the Faketeams results are further down the ballot.
