June Rookie of the Month: Jair Jurrjens!!!

I got an email this morning from a PR firm with the following info -- very cool!

The “MLB Rookie of the Month Award presented by Gillette” is back, and I thought you’d be interested in hearing that Jair Jurrjens is one of four players nominated as the best rookie in the National League during the month of June.

This officially-sanctioned Major League Baseball award is now in the hands of the fans. Online ballots can be cast at, so feel free to vote!

If you do vote online, you are automatically entered for a chance to win a trip to one of the 2008 World Series games.

Other National League nominees include pitcher Mitchell Boggs of the St. Louis Cardinals, outfielder John Bowker of the San Francisco Giants and pitcher Edgar Gonzalez of the San Diego Padres.

Way to go, Jair! Let's vote him in every month -- he's too awesome, he should have been an all-star, and if I had a vote, he'd be Rookie of the Year at this point. <3

Video of awesomeness

i'm in 4 different fantasy leagues and i was lucky enough to pick up JJ for one of my teams about 6 or 7 weeks ago (on a hunch). i also picked him up in a different league last week -- i was soooo shocked that he was available. those other team managers are idiots! LOL

hopefully he wasn't just livin' the charmed life the first half...i pray he can continue to put this team on his back in every start he makes!

Congrats to him. For those that don't get FSN South, Katy Temple mentioned on the pre-game show that a donation(I think she said $5000) will be made in his name to a charity of his choice, he said he was thinking of something for the deaf, since his brother is deaf. Awww.
