Marlins' Chris Coghlan Wins NL Rookie of the Year

It took awhile, but the Marlins finally beat the Philadelphia Phillies this season.

Fish rookie outfielder Chris Coghlan won the National League Rookie of the Year Award today, narrowly beating out Phillies pitcher J.A. Happ, according to ABC News.

In 128 games this season, Cogs hit .321 with nine home runs and a .390 on-base percentage, providing the spark at the top of the lineup that had previously been missing. All of that for a measley $400K.

Cogs, a natural second basemen, will likely move into the infield for the 2010 season, because it's looking like a sure thing that Dan Uggla is headed elsewhere.
