This year I had to do more to make sure I choose the best of the FTBFBNC entries. My wife and I reviewed them, but more was needed. So it was off to see Paul Blart: Mall Cop!
With all the previews for animated movies and commericals for Nickelodeon shows and products, I was gently reminded this is a family-friendly contest. Out went the always-classic Pujols-inspired names. Even the very topical one that combined the two best players in the game, Alex Rodriguez in New York and your previously-mentioned Pujols.
With my better angel having won, here are the finalists. Please vote for the one consider the best. The top three vote-getters will win a copy of Baseball Prospectus 2009: The Essential Guide to the 2009 Baseball Season.
Voting ends next Sunday morning. For those interested, here is a link to the entries.
