I think you gotta' include the D-backs' Chris Young in that mix. I believe he led all rookies in home runs.
I hate the Rockies with a passion (odd I know). But, I gotta say Troy TUlowitski is a beast.
Ryan Braun only played in 5 more games than Hunter Pence, cause he was called up in May, and put up monster numbers. 34 homers and .324 BA. He also has higher slugging and OBP.
In other words, Braun is the man.
