In 1986, six players got votes for ROY in the AL. Jose Canseco won the voting and probably had the best career of all six players. It seems that a couple of these player were able to ride out their reputation and play past their prime. Cory Snyder had 3 seasons of positive WAR, but was able to player for 10 seasons, while Ruben Sierra had 10 seasons of positive WAR while playing 25 seasons.
