DMV: Bergesen Isn’t the Only Stealth ROY

DMV is a daily roundup of District-Maryland-Virginia (mostly) sporting links.


Sure, we’ve stumped for O’s starter Brad Bergesen for AL Rookie of the Year, but it’s different when Baseball America does it. They have him at fourth overall (second in the AL) among their top-20 rookies, which also includes Nolan Reimold (No. 11) and Jordan Zimmermann (20). B’more hasn’t had a ROY since The Otter in ’89 and D.C./Montreal hasn’t had one since The Hawk in ’77. Maybe all Bergie needs is an animal nickname. Is The Bird still taken? [Baseball America]
