Soto is as Soto Does

Cubs' catcher Geovany Sotohas been named the NL Rookie of the Year by the Baseball Writers Association of America.

Soto hit .285 this year, with a sexy 23 home runs and 86 RBIs. He is the first catcher to capture the award since Mike Piazza in 1993. The last Cubbie to sport the title was Kerry Wood in 1998.

Soto's RBI record beat out all rookies in MLB. The pitching staff had the third lowest ERA in the league. And, by the way, we're going to try to forget about the playoffs for the moments.

Soto was also behind the plate for Zambrano's no-hitter on September 14. He was also the first rookie catcher to start in an All-Star game.

Muchas Gracias, Puerto Rico. Muy caliente.
