Goat Riders of the Apocalypse
A Hundred Next Years
Just Read 'em!
All-Star balloting opened up earlier this week, so I decided to cast my first of approximately 25 ballots today. Most of my votes are awarded based on statistical merit in 2005, but I'm a fan first and a stat-head second. I'm thrilled when the stats will support a vote for a guy like Torii Hunter, and Ichiro!, but I'll vote for a guy like Aramis Ramirez even if he isn't having the best season among NL third basemen.
|Position||American League||National League|
|First Base||Paul Konerko, CWS||Derrek Lee, CHC|
|Second Base||Brian Roberts, BAL||Jeff Kent, LAD|
|Third Base||Alex Rodriguez, NYY||Aramis Ramirez, CHC|
|Shortstop||Miguel Tejada, BAL||Clint Barmes, COL|
|Catcher||Ivan Rodriguez, DET||Paul Lo Duca, FLA|
|Outfielder||Ichiro!, SEA||Pat Burrell, PHI|
|Outfielder||Vladimir Guerrero, LAA||Miguel Cabrera, FLA|
|Outfielder||Torii Hunter, MIN||Jason Lane, HOU|
|Designated Hitter||Dimitri Young, DET||Our pitchers hit|
Teams with players receiving two votes: Cubs, Marlins, Orioles, Tigers.
Teams with players receiving one vote: Dodgers, Rockies, Phillies, Astros, White Sox, Yankees, Angels, Twins, Mariners.
Notes and discussion:
You too can vote for the All-Star starting lineups. I just ask that you keep my man Aramis Ramirez in mind.
