so, the ballot's out on mlb.com

I had an idea, to vote now, then compare my ballot now to the one I fill out throughout the process (e.g. one now, one in a week or two, and so on)

so here's my Current Ballot (May 1):

American League

C: Salvador Perez, KC
1B: Mitch Moreland, BOS
2B: Jose Altuve, HOU
SS: Francisco Lindor, CLE
3B: Miguel Sano, MIN
OF: Aaron Judge, NYY; Mike Trout, LAA; Kevin Pillar, TOR
DH: Nelson Cruz, SEA

National League

C: J.T. Realmuto, MIA
1B: Ryan Zimmerman, WSH
2B: Brandon Phillips, ATL
SS: Corey Seager, LAD
3B: Justin Turner, LAD
OF: Matt Kemp, ATL; Bryce Harper, WSH; A.J. Pollock, ARZ

tell me how shitty my ballot is in the comments! (or post yours, whatever)

Completely based on stats and not popularity (flashback to last year's infield for NL).
Also Nelson Cruz because I feel bad for the Astros beating the Mariners all the time and Eric Thames because home runs.

That's why there's updates
R.I.P. Eric Thames only hit 1 home run in the last 5-6 days if any at all.

New ballot (May 17):

American League

C: Salvador Perez, KC (no change)
1B: Mitch Moreland, BOS Yonder Alonso, OAK
2B: Jose Altuve, HOU (no change)
SS: Francisco Lindor, CLE Jean Segura, SEA
3B: Miguel Sano, MIN (no change)
OF: Aaron Judge, NYY; Mike Trout, LAA; Kevin Pillar, TOR (no changes)
DH: Nelson Cruz, SEA Corey Dickerson, TB

National League

C: J.T. Realmuto, MIA Buster Posey, SF
1B: Ryan Zimmerman, WSH (no change)
2B: Brandon Phillips, ATL Daniel Murphy, WSH
SS: Corey Seager, LAD Chris Owings, ARZ
3B: Justin Turner, LAD (no change)
OF: Matt Kemp, ATL; Bryce Harper, WSH (no change); A.J. Pollock, ARZ Marcell Ozuna, MIA; Charlie Blackmon, COL

I'm actually pretty surprised by the consistency, it's only been a little over 2 weeks but I expected some of those hot-starting players to cool down. Of note, many of the players I scratched (Cruz, Realmuto, Kemp, Pollock) were still in consideration (final 2 or 3) but didn't end up as my final choice. Also of note, I'm making almost all decisions based on the limited information at my disposal (MLB.com gives AVG, HR, RBI, and SB), with only a few close calls decided by other measures -- so as a result, players who contribute in other ways, namely defense, end up getting undervalued a lot.

Update: I didn't put in Michael Conforto because of LGM's comment.
EDIT: Is it just me, or do we collectively agree the NL outfield should be Harper, Blackmon and Ozuna?

lol p much everyone has Harper/Ozuna/Blackmon at this point. a few others making good cases but damn

also. def agree with Freeman, but I never vote for injured players as a personal rule. Zimmerman/Goldschmidt were the top 2 I considered there.
