The AL Rookie of the Year award¬†goes to Ichiro Suzuki of the Seattle Mariners but not without a tiny bit of local controversy.¬†Indians beat writer Chris Assenheimer of the Elyria, Ohio Chronicle-Telegram votes for C.C. Sabathia, who posted a 17-4 record. Assenheimer stated that the nine years of professional experience in Japan made Suzuki less of a rookie than Cleveland pitcher Sabathia. He is the lone voter that prevents Suzuki’s award from being unanimous.
