Matsui Is Runner-Up In ROY Voting
Matsui finished his season with a .287 batting average, 16 homeruns 82 runs and 106 RBI while playing in all 163 of the Yankees' games. Berroa had a .287 BA, 17 homers, 92 runs scored and 73 RBI as well as 21 stolen bases.

Though considered a rookie by MLB definitions, Matsui is a veteran player of the Japanese League and even has an MVP award while playing for the Yomiuri Giants. The controversy was laid to rest when Berroa took home the award anyway.
Florida Marlin pitcher Dontrelle Willis defeated Milwaukee's Scott Podsednik and Arizona's Brandon Webb for the National League award. Also receiving votes in the AL were Tampa Bay outfielder Rocco Baldelli, Cleveland outfielder Jody Gerut and Texas first baseman Mark Teixeira.
