The SB Nation's baseball writers voted on our own version of the Rookie of the Year, the NL Best Rookie for 2013. We made our choices a few weeks back and the results of the voting were published today. If you haven't had a chance to check out the full results, including the AL Awards for Pitcher, Rookie and Player of the Year for 2013, the post by Steven Goldman at is well worth a look...
