4. Jose Abreu (Chicago White Sox)
Jose Abreu had one of the best rookie campaigns I have ever seen. A lot of problems have come from some international prospects moving to America and playing in the big leagues right away. I don’t think anyone could convince me that Abreu wasn’t ready. The ROY got his first All-Star under his break already, finished third in the AL in HR and RBI, and wound up fourth in MVP voting. Going forward, I fully expect that the White Sox addition of one of the more talented first baseman of the last 10 years (Adam LaRoche) will make Jose Abreu into a future MVP.
