2012 Rookies of the Year and Big Dodger News

Braves closer Craig Kimbrel and Rays starter Jeremy Hellickson have won the 2012 Rookie of the Year awards.

The article to which I link doesn't yet include all of the voting results, but presumably it will reasonably soon.

Of course, today's really important baseball news is the 8-year contract extension for Matt Kemp that the Dodgers are apparently going to announce officially this afternoon. Woot!

Update (11/15/11): You can find all of the voting results in this article. In additional Dodger news, we have signed second baseman Mark Ellis to a 2-year contract.

Update (11/15/11): The Dodgers have also apparently signed Matt Treanor to a 1-year contract to be their backup catcher. This is even smaller news than the Ellis signing, though the Kemp one is obviously a wonderful piece of news for the Dodgers.
