    I wrote him in at 1B today x 5. Had already given Yuli 10 votes though...

    I voted for him at 3rd. Does it make a difference? I only did it once. Will vote for him at 1st from now on. It's pretty cool how he deserves to go at any infield position really.

    Yes, it makes a difference. His most PAs are as a 1B - plus AL 1B crop weak.

    ^uh oh. the dude's fatal flaw is he is too versatile. Nobody can agree what position to vte him in. I now agree with @Hey Now! that he should be at 1b. What are we gonna do Cluthfans? We gotta agree on one vote.

    It's not like root sports can say "put him at 1B" that would be telling Yuli off. We are probably gonna have to do outfield with Springer and Reddick if we want him in. A lot more ppl watch root than on Clutch Fans I think.

    Fangraphs had an article yesterday talking about whether MarGo's breakout is real and what adjustments he's made. Pretty decent read.

    There's zero chance he'll make it as an OF - BUT......... you raise a legitimately good point. Will we get Astro buy-in if we're undermining Yuli......... Hmmmmmmmmmmm......

    There is a 0% chance he gets even close to being voted in (unless it is in the final vote). He'll have to be selected as a bench player.

    Of course; but he's been awesome and it's a nice way to recognize his season by trying to raise awareness around it. Don't be a Debbie Downer....

    Except we could be voting for Alonso to avoid him taking up a bench spot because Miggy may not get selected if he isn't the starter. Alonso is clearly more deserving right now. No telling who the players will select, but Miggy is certainly not performing like an all-star right now.

    Why does Gonzalez not play everyday?

    Because it would be unfair if a team went undefeated for the whole season.
