Double Poll: Spring Training Storyline and Ricky Romero vs. Josh Beckett


We’ve added a new poll on the site, and it begs the question, which spring training storyline are you most interested in? If you scroll down on our site, on the right hand side below our Team Tweets application you will find the poll. Have your say!

Also, as stated before in my position players post from last week, Jays Journal is collaborating with the writers from BoSox Injection (Red Sox), Yanks Go Yard (Yankees), Birds Watcher (Orioles), and Rays Colored Glasses (Rays) to select an AL East All-Star team, which will face off against the AL Central and AL West All-Star teams in a fan vote hosted by our MLB site Call to the Pen. The AL winner will then advance to face off against the NL division selected by the same method and another fan vote will be held. We have reached a general consensus of what pitchers should be on the AL East All-Star team, except for one. So, we need you, the readers to vote for who you feel should be the final piece for our AL East All-Star team.

Each candidate received two votes among our AL East writers. Romero obviously had the better 2010 season emerging as the Jays’ potential ace and we’re obviously pulling for him, but Beckett has been a horse and postseason star over the last few seasons in Boston.

Dismissing all pre-2011 performances and statistics, who is the better fit for a AL East All-Star team this season in 2011?

The poll will only be open for just under 24 hours, so get your votes in while you can. I will post the final roster of pitchers tomorrow night, and include the position players again to show the entire AL East All-Star team that will go up against the other divisions.
