Rookie Watch Part II

If all goes well whoever wins this years Rookie of the Year will definitely put up some impressive numbers. This years Rookie class is one of the most talented ever. However,  I think this years Rookie of the Year has been narrowed down between 2 teams.

The Chicago Bandits have had the ROY the last 4 out of 5 seasons and this year looks like they might make it 5 of 6. 

Michelle Gascoigne, Bandits - Has pitched 52.2 innings this year and has only given up 11 earned runs with her 1.46 ERA.  Her ERA is second lowest on the team to Monica Abbott.  Not too shabby.

Ayumi Karino, Racers - Well it took a little while for her to get going  but I think she's got the system down.  All of a sudden Karino is batting .321 with an OB% of .391.  She has risen to the challenge of the NPF.

Nerissa Myers, Bandits - She is batting .350 and batting 3rd in the line up, one spot after Wiggins and before Goler and Williams.  Her OB % is .424.  What a great addition she has been to an already dangerous Bandit line-up.

Kimi Pohlman, Bandits - She hovered around .300 most of the season and has raised her average to .345 over the last few weeks.  To go along with her average she has an OB% of .376 and compliments the bottom of the Bandits order with her offensive versatility.

Andi Williamson, Bandits - She has pitched the second most innings on the Bandits behind you know who.  She is 7-2 on the season with a 1.94 ERA.  She continues to get the ball in big games and more often than not....delivers.
