As I try to digest the Lidge trade news while I wake up this morning, I'll note that the first five slots of my ballot had gone Holliday-Jones-Fielder-Pujols-Wright.

My ballot had not included Jimmy Rollins anywhere.

I think some of the more sabermetrically inclined bloggers would feel that I should have had David Wright higher on my list, but my view of this is that while not doubting the existence of park effects, I'll choose to prioritize actual at-bats higher than hypothetical ones.
