Twenty (54 percent) picked shortstop J.J. Hardy; 13 (35 percent) selected second baseman Orlando Hudson; four (10 percent) went for designated hitter Jim Thome; and zero (0 percent) middle reliever Clay Condrey.
New poll up.
As long as I'm being semi-interactive ... my basic principle here (and in the print column) is that I write about the topics I want to write about, and bypass the rest. It's my time and my life, and I'm not getting paid so much for this that I'm going to spend that time writing stuff I'm not interested in.
Still, if nobody reads or is interested, what's the point?
So ... if you have a specific topic you'd like to see me address at some point, either in the blog or in the print column, tell me about it in the comments.
