Corey Seager picks up 3rd LAD unaminous ROY
Here are all the other Dodger bloggers weighing in on Cory Seager:
Seager is the third Dodgers unanimous Rookie of the Year, joining Mike Piazza (1993) and Raul Mondesi (1994).
Seager is the first Dodgers shortstop to win Rookie of the Year, and the 17th Dodger overall (a Major League record, and it’s not especially close — second is a tie between the Athletics and the Yankees, with eight). However, Seager is the first Dodger to win the award in two decades. From 1992 through 1996, a Dodger rookie took home the prize every year (Eric Karros, Mike Piazza, Raul Mondesi, Hideo Nomo, and Todd Hollandsworth).
“Corey is a special talent that doesn’t come around too often. The Dodgers organization and fans are truly lucky to have him wear their uniform,” Utley said after Seager was unanimously named NL Rookie of the Year.
