Francisco Cervelli Not Named Rookie of The Year; Disappointed

The American League Rookie of the Year Award has been announced, and the winner was some guy not named Francisco Cervelli.

"I don't know what more I could do," explained Cervelli. "I caught some games in May for the World Champions. I sat on a bench for 3 months of play-off baseball. What more could you ask for?"

Cervelli makes a strong case. When the winner was announced as Oakland's Andrew Bailey, most fans reacted with a "Who?" or an "" Andrew Bailey could not be reached for comment, largely because nobody had his number.

"I called everyone I know in Oakland, nobody had his number," explained Chief Fact Checker for RJG, Selena Roberts. "His number is unlisted. Probably A-Rod erased it from everyone's phone and inserted his information instead so people would forget about the Rookie of the Year and call him instead."

For now, Cervelli will have to live with the disappointment of being passed over for Rookie of the Year.

I know this is like years old at this point but I was reading random archives and hahahah this is especially funny considering that apparently, at the All-Star Game, they asked Mariano what he thought about Andrew Bailey and he said something like, "Who? He plays in the majors? He's gotta be in the NL, right? Oh, he's the closer for Oakland? I've never heard of him." Dissed!!! (Or not, because Mo is some sort of God-robot who cares not for these silly humans.)
