It’s almost Spring Training time here in Arizona and in that other place I think they named Florida. That means time to put your baseball fan caps backs on (if they ever left your head for the winter) and more importantly those baseball fan brains back to work as the NL West starts a collaborative project next week. All FanSided NL West blogs Chicken Friars, Lasorda’s Lair, Frisco Fastball, and Roxpile including your truly, will participate in putting together the best the NL West has to offer.
We will be creating a roster full of players from this division only. All five blogs will collaborate on putting together a roster of players who they consider best at each position within the division. If there are any ties in the voting, we will open up the vote to a reader poll to help us ultimately decide who is the best in the NL West.
When the rosters are complete we will send the votes to the readers to face off against other National League divisions to determine the best of the NL and then ultimately face off in conclusion against the American League in an All-Star World Series.
Sure, that means we may be voting for players from our divisional competitors, but let’s be honest, you can’t really believe the best player at every position lies within the Arizona Diamondbacks roster do you? So, when it comes time, be honest and choose the best from our friends in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Colorado. Let’s have some fun!
