He is still the most feared hitter in baseball in my mind.
Prado is well on his way to a 200 hit season. Impressive.
I refuse to vote for a self-absorbed player like Hanley. Reyes is back to form.
Despite the high K totals, still a great run producer. I really don’t want to see Polanco get the start.
9 HR’s and a .300+ average, Olivo is warming up to the thin mountain air just fine.
The Hebrew Hammer continues to mash for the Brew Crew.
The dynamic rising star is a bright spot in a losing organization.
I’m going against all of my morals with this pick. If Ethier didn’t miss some time perhaps he’d get the nod from me.
At this rate, likely MVP and Cy Young award winner. He is on another level.
Wilson pitches with the ideal closer attitude and has the numbers to back it up.
No competition here. Miggy is poised for MVP.
Cano will be the AL batting champion this season when its all said and done.
AL-SS-Alex Gonzalez-Blue Jays
Who would have predicted the power numbers he is putting up so far?
AL-3B-Adrian Beltre-Red Sox
Beltre and his .336 BA have propelled the Boston offense.
How could you pick anyone besides Mauer here?
After a slow start, his power surge has been incredible. Its been good to see him healthy this season.
I predicted a bad year for Hunter this season. So far he has silenced this critic.
He is one of a kind.
AL-SP-John Lester-Red Sox
Not as good an ERA or win totals as Price, but more K’s. He’s helped bring the Sox a long way since the start of the season.
Ageless and dominant.

I still cant believe Palanco is leading in votes at 3B. Stupid Phillie fans.
Polanco is ahead by roughly 130,538 votes. Dave has closed the gap, but he's going to need a solid push to make it happen. By the way, I'm disgusted with the "go Gaga for Wright" campaign.
I'm with you on the Gaga campaign. Sometimes the Mets marketing dept. comes across as excessively desperate.
BRIAN WILSON as you NL reliever?!? Carlos Marmol will destroy Brian Wilson.
Yes Mark, Brian Wilson is my pick for NL reliever. Marmol wouldn't even be my second choice. Heath Bell would be. Marmol's strikeout totals and ERA are impressive but he only has 13 saves. He would not "destroy" Brian Wilson, as Wilson trains as an MMA fighter in the off-season and would have his way with Marmol. Brian Wilson is nasty.
