Yesterday while watching the Braves/Red Sox game (you can catch the next televised game on ESPN Wednesday Night Baseball) I cast my ballot in the MLB All-Star voting. Here's my ballot:
1st Base: Justin Morneu (of the Twins)
2nd Base: Robinson Cano (New York Yankees)
Short Stop: Orlando Cabrera (Anaheim Angels)
3rd Base: Eric Chavez of Oakland (since I didn't have the presence of mind to vote for him last year)
Outfielders (3): Torri Hunter of Minnesota, Ordonez of Detroit, and Gary Matthews, Jr. of the Angels
Catcher: Pudge Rodriguez of Detroit (one of my all-time favs)
1st Base: Tie--Prince Fielder (Brewers) and Scott Thorman (Braves)
2nd Base: Chase Utley of the Phillies
Short Stop: Tie--Edgar Renteria (Braves) and Jose Reyes (Mets)
3rd Base: Tie--Garrett Atkins (the God-forsaken Rockies) and Chipper Jones (Braves)
Outfielders (supposed to be 3): Matt Holliday (Rockies), Matt Diaz (Braves), Andruw Jones (Braves), Mike Cameron (Padres), and Jeff Franceour (Braves).
Catcher: Brian McCann (Braves)
Notice I have a major problem picking in the National League?? I can't help that I'm a National League kinda girl. And, I love the Braves, what can I say? I think they are all all-stars...well most of them. I think they should send McKay McBride back to Triple A.
Also notice I didn't list Barry Bonds? I couldn't do it. As hard as I try, I just can't be on his side. It's Hammerin' Hank for crying out loud. I just can't fall on the side of Bonds.
