Ike Davis misses out on NL ROY
Well, this one wasn’t actually egregious at all. Ike Davis finished seventh in National League Rookie of the Year voting and received two third-place votes, the best finish by any Met since Jay Payton finished third with 37 points back in 2000.
Pitchers Hisanori Takahashi and Jon Niese were also eligible for the Mets, though neither received votes. Here’s the complete tally:
Buster Posey of the Giants won the award with 129 total points and 20 first-place votes, narrowly beating out Jason Heyward of the Braves.
