Like heck he didn't.

Baggarly said he asked colleagues, “If I’m the only voter who keeps Alonso from being a unanimous winner, will Mets fans mildly torch me? Or will I be incinerated beyond recognition?” He wrote he had no interest in generating controversy.

There's no suspense has to who will be the Rookies of the Year. So here's the question.

Which one will hit more homers next year?

Conclusion of Jeff Wiser's piece on July 15 at Baseball Prospectus:

Back in the stone age of the first half of the 2014 season, there was one home run hit for every 42.9 plate appearances. That number has jumped to one long ball for every 27.9 plate appearances this season. That’s a dramatic increase of about 53 percent. Singles are down about 10 percent, doubles are effectively stable, triples have decreased by 16 percent, and home runs are up big.

Calling the changes to today’s game a “power surge” is technically incorrect. It’s a home run surge, but other types of power output are either down or unchanged. The benefits of juiced baseballs have been extremely lopsided. If teams want to play for the home run, it’s hard to blame them. From an observational perspective, that’s meant fewer singles, fewer triples, and no additional two-baggers. Is that better or worse for watching baseball? That’s open to interpretation, but don’t call it a “power surge.” It’s a home run surge.

Now they screw with the ball like they did last year going into the post-season when they essentially nuked several pitchers ability to throw their out pitches with cute logos.

Memberships in the final clubs...

50+ HR: 1

40-49 HR: 10

30-39 HR: 48

20-29 HR: 72

10-19 HR: 134

Clearly, the little boppers benefited more from the juiced baseball than the big boppers.

Not what I would have predicted. And definitely not what MLB was looking for.

So now what happens?

He doesn't just hit the ball far and often. He gives great quotes.

#49 today ... 10 more games to hit #52 and tie the guy from the other side of the East River.

This is not what Tim and I predicted last fall in Arizona.

That's correct. In the new formulas, which I am not sophisticated  enough to adjust while the season is underway, he will earn -- just guessing -- two or three dollars less.
