The Tampa Bay Rays won the "Topps Organization of the Year" award today at baseball's winter meetings.
The award, which Tampa Bay has never won, is based on a points system that includes four minor-league categories: All-Star players, Players of the Month, each league's MVP award, the Topps overall Minor League Player of the Year award, and major-league rookies who made the Topps Rookie All-Star team.
The Rays drew points from ...
Delmon Young -- Rookie All-Star
Justin Ruggiano -- August player of month, All-Star
Jae Seo -- July pitcher of month
John Jaso -- August player of month, All-Star
Evan Longoria -- May player of month, All-Star

Fernando Perez -- All-Star
Dale Thayer -- All-Star
Desmond Jennings -- June player of month
Maiko Loyola -- All-Star
Mike McCormick -- All-Star
Jason Ragan -- All-Star

Topps has handed out the award every year since 1966. The Dodgers, Brewers and Yankees have won five times each.
