ANtics - Episode III: Rookie of the Year Candidates

Although both Nick Swisher and Dan Johnson had disappointing 0-5 games in today's 11-0 shellacking of the "hapless" Kansas City Royals, both, in addition to rookie closer Huston Street, have raised talk in certain circles about the A's making a serious run at back-to-back Rookies of the Year, following Bobby Crosby's win in 2004.

After all, it really can't be that hard for an A's player to take the trophy. Ben Grieve did it!

In this week's ANtics, Swisher, Johnson and Street make their case for why they each deserve to win Rookie of the Year.
