Bryce Harper Won Rookie Of The Year And Twitter Is Pissed

MLB's individual awards week is underway and to no one's surprise, Mike Trout took home the AL Rookie of the Year trophy unanimously. That guy = a pretty good baseball player. His National League counterpart was Bryce Harper and frankly, some tweeters think that was a clown choice, bro.
Now, nobody is necessarily wrong for thinking Harper shouldn't have won the award. Among NL rookies, he was second in home runs, fourth in RBI, and 10th in batting average. Somewhere along the way, his hype machine could have snowballed him into winning this award. So no, the stats aren't eye-popping and he certainly didn't have nearly as strong a freshman campaign as Trout, but that never stopped Twitter.
Ladies and gentlemen, today in hype-haters:
The angriest person in all of Arizona.
Aaron Hill not making the All Star Game, Wade Miley not getting ROY and both losing to Bryce Harper. I wish STATS actaully meant something.
