Judge, 25, is also a finalist for the AL MVP (which will be announced Thursday) after leading the AL in home runs with 52. He broke Mark McGwire's rookie home run record, which sealed this award as much as something can be "sealed" when it was already guaranteed before the last days of the regular season.

Bellinger made his debut with the Dodgers in April. The previous record of 38 had been held by Frank Robinson, who earned the 1956 NL Rookie of the Year Award, and Wally Berger. He added 97 RBIs, 10 stolen bases, a.267/.352/.581 slash line and 4.2 WAR as he replaced Adrian Gonzalez as the Dodgers' everyday first baseman.

The two Rookie of the Year races, however, provided absolutely zero drama. In the AL, Andrew Benintendi finished second, followed by Trey Mancini and Matt Olson.
