DMV: Baltimore’s Stealth ROY Candidate

brad-bergesen-mug.jpgDMV is a daily roundup of District-Maryland-Virginia (mostly) sporting links.

We did this with Guthrie in ’07 and Lannan in ’08, so we might as well with Bergesen in ’09. He’s been the O’s best starter (5-2 with a 3.76 ERA and 1.22 WHIP) and his past month has been phenomenal (4-0 with a 2.23). Plus, he rocks the flat brim and has the stuff to stick around. So Bergesen for AL Rookie of the Year it is, and, should he falter, there’s Nolan Reimold and Matt Wieters to fall back on. [Krem’s Sports Blog]
