Yankees Chapter of the BBA Announces AL Hitter of the Year Ballot

Today we unveil the last Baseball Bloggers Alliance ballot, this time it is the Stan Musial Award given to the best hitter in the league.

Naming the award after Musial makes sense as he was one of the best hitters in baseball history. A 20-time All-Star and a three-time MVP, Musial finished his career with 3,630 hits, 475 home runs, a .331 average, a .976 OPS, and more than twice as many walks as strikeouts.

With nearly 300 baseball blogs in the BBA there are 13 eligible Yankee blogs that vote. Our final decision counts as two votes in the overall tally for each award. These ballots are based off of the regular season only.

Here are the eligible Yankees blogs that voted:

Here is how we voted:

Other players getting votes were Vladimir Guerrero of the Rangers, Nick Swisher of the Yankees, Ichiro Suzuki of the Mariners, Delmon Young of the Twins, Justin Morneau of the Twins, and Michael Young of the Rangers.

This is the third Ranger we Yankee blogs have voted for. Ron Washington for Connie Mack and Neftali Feliz for Goose Gossage were the other two winners.
