Why go Milledge when they could kill two birds with one stone and vote a worse player, as well as up their home tally, in David Ortiz? :-)

That was Plan A, but NL park means no DH. :-D

If that's the case they are just voting in someone who won't even be able to play, which seems silly even if you are just trying to prove a point about the voting system. At least vote in a guy who could play in it, thus it gets publicity more and calls more attention.


Are there any other AAA players on the ballot?


Well I can think of worse players than Milledge that are in the majors...

Read the Slate piece about Fitzpatrick. Even if Milledge won the vote I doubt MLB would release numbers that said he did. It would be funny to coordinate anti-voting based on which league your team is in. Red Sox and Yankee fans should join together and make the NL look like a joke.

Well the NL hasn't been able to win the game since 1996, I think they are doing a pretty good job by themselves.
