Dodgers Dugout: Time to vote for final two position players on team’s all-time 40-man roster
Hi, and welcome to another edition of Dodgers Dugout. My name is Houston Mitchell and while we wait for more offseason moves, let’s continue picking the all-time 40-man roster with the wild-card round.
The all-time team, wild card
Now that we have chosen three players at each position other than pitcher, let’s select two more position players. To do so, I will take the highest vote getters at each position who did not make the team, plus anyone who got more than 15% of the vote. You can vote for two of those players, which will put our roster at 26 players before we get to the pitchers.
Here’s your list of players on the ballot:
Now it’s time for you to vote. Remember to vote for two. You can click here to vote, or you can email me your two choices. Ties are not allowed, and you have to vote for two. Vote for more or fewer and your vote won’t count.
Next week: Starting pitchers. We’ll be voting for nine.
