Chris Coghlan wins NL Rookie of the Year, Gerardo Parra mentioned

12

"Florida Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan was elected the National League Rookie of the Year Award by the BBWAA. Although not on seven of the 32 ballots, Coghlan out-pointed Philadelphia Phillies pitcher J.A. Happ, the only player named on all ballots. Coghlan was listed first on 17 ballots compared to 10 for Happ and finished with 105 points, based on the 5-3-1 tabulation system. Coghlan placed second on six ballots and third on two while Happ had 11 seconds and 11 thirds to total 94 points." Gerardo Parra got a 3rd-place vote, to finish equal-8th, and A's closer Andrew Bailey won the AL award. A thought strikes me: with the closure of the Tribune at the end of the year, who's gonna be the second writer from Phoenix in 2010? Will they give two votes to the Republic? Or will it be Steve Gilbert? Because, as far as I can tell, there's only one paper covering the team in Phoenix now.
