    Logical choices. I just couldn’t vote for a relief pitcher though compared to an every day player. A reliever averages about 65 innings a year. An everyday player plays about 1350 innings if he gets into 150 games. I can see a starting pitcher, but never a reliever. It’s the same reason why a closer should never win Cy Young.

    But, can’t quibble with your choices. That will probably be the order on most ballots.

    I agree with pretty much all of your choices. I like the Daniel Hudson pick. He’s not getting near enough credit as he should. However, I had to put Jaime ahead of him purely on innings.

    William, I agree with you almost all of the time. For instance, I would have put Andrus ahead of Bailey last year. I even wrote this in my ballot at http://www.rhinorant.com. However, I think the exception is when the rookie, Feliz, saves 40 games for a division winner. Still, you can’t go wrong with Jackson.
