Pacific Coast League All-Stars Announced

The Pacific Coast League’s postseason All-Stars were announced earlier today:

Catcher: John Hester, Reno Aces
First Base: Randy Ruiz, Las Vegas 51s
Second Base: Eric Young, Jr., Colorado Springs Sky Sox
Third Base: Esteban German, Oklahoma City Redhawks
Shortstop: Alcides Escobar, Nashville Sounds
Outfield: John Bowker, Fresno Grizzlies
Outfield: Terry Evans, Salt Lake Bees
Outfield: Matt Miller, Colorado Springs Sky Sox
Designated Hitter: Mitch Jones, Albuquerque Isotopes
Right-Handed Pitcher: Bud Norris, Round Rock Express

Relief Pitcher: Scott Strickland, Albuquerque Isotopes

The four major awards – Rookie of the Year, Pitcher of the Year, Most Valuable Player, and Manager of the Year – will be announced, in that order, over the next four days. Randy Ruiz was my pick for MVP but may be harmed by the fact that he has missed the last three weeks after being called up by the Blue Jays.

Time to Vote for your AAA All-Stars

I made sure to vote for my Z-meter guys (assuming they weren’t sucking up the joint), but you can vote for anyone you like. If you haven’t seen enough AAA action, you can even vote for the guys that sound like the best law firm. When I chose my three outfielders for the Pacific Coast League, I went with Bourgeois, Coon & LaHair as my fictional courtroom representatives.
