With pitchers and catchers only days away from reporting, the FanSided Sports Family developed an idea for all the MLB blogs to create their own All Divisional Teams. Blog Red Machine, in conjunction with Climbing Tal’s Hill (Houston), Cubbies Crib (Chicago), Redbird Rants (St. Louis), Reviewing the Brew (Milwaukee) and Rum Bunter (Pittsburgh) will be participants in naming an All NL Central team. BRM received this announcement today.
We here at Blog Red Machine have already been working behind the scenes in doing such. Since we’ve already done so, I would like to hear from our readers on who they would select. How can you do this? You can do this in one of two ways.
First, you can submit your All NL Central team by simply leaving yours within the comments of this post. Second, email us with your picks at [email protected]. You can include any analysis and/or comments you have on your selections. For this week, we will be focusing on position players only. The following week, we will concentrate on the pitching staff. BRM will begin to list our choices on Monday, February 7. On February 14, we will announce the All NL Central team. When we announce these complete results, we will review our vote and include yours and compare those to that of the final vote. That means you have plenty of time to sort through all the rosters.
There may be an instance or two where there is a tie. If that results, Cubbies Crib will be hosting polls as the readers will break those ties. These polls will be up for only a period of 24 hours, so we encourage you to voice your opinion by voting. I will keep you informed of those and supply a link to them in order for you to vote in those polls.
The ultimate result will be the crowing of the best of the all divisional teams. All the NL divisional teams will square off against one another and the same for the AL. Those polls will be conducted over on FanSided’s flagship blog for all MLB blogs, Call to the Pen. Again, I will provide you the link to vote on these polls as well. Thses polls will run a little longer, about two days.
Once a winner among the AL and NL teams are announced, there will be another vote by you to determine the best all divisional team in all of baseball. You will determine the outcome by your vote as to which division in baseball has the best “All Divisional Team”.
