Far be it from me to suggest how you should vote, but here’s my choices, including write-ins. Note that you can vote up to 25 times and that fan votes only count for one-third of the votes. See here for more details.
- Carlos Hernandez and Wade Davis
- Winston Abreu and Dale Thayer
- No vote. John’s OK, but not All-Star caliber yet and I just couldn’t bring myself to vote for someone on another team.
- Chris Richard, of course
- Ray Olmedo (realize that he’s played almost as much third base and second, but Ray’s meant a lot to our team this year wherever he’s played)
- No vote (see write-in below). Reid hasn’t been with us for a couple of weeks. Don’t know when he’ll be back. And, to be honest, I’m not sure he’s the best in the IL.
- No vote. I like Chris Nowak a lot, but is he really a third baseman? Or just learning how to be a hitter who’ll end up playing first base sometime, someplace.
- Ray Sadler and Justin Ruggiano. Don’t see the point in voting for Matt Joyce, don’t think he’s coming back. See write-ins below.
- Jon Weber, of course.
- Jon Weber, outfield
- Brandon Chaves, shortstop
It’s kind of tedious to make 25 votes, but probably worth it to our guys. Also, if you’re a fan of any players in the Pacific Coast League, you can vote for them as well.
