Note that Pablo Sandoval would have been a unanimous choice if he had 15 fewer at-bats in 2008. It's hard to complain about the decision to play him then, though. When a guy's ready, he should play. Worrying about potential awards a player may or may not be eligible for the following season: weenie talk.

FYI: My ballot was Hanson, Happ, and Coghlan, in that order. Close race.
