Marlins Aaron Award nominees

The Aaron Award voting is starting once again and this year's nominees for the Marlins are Hanley Ramirez, Cody Ross and Jorge Cantu.

In case you don't know what the Aaron Award is:

In 1999, the Hank Aaron Award was introduced by Major League Baseball to honor the 25th anniversary of its namesake hitting his 715th home run and passing the immortal Babe Ruth for what then was first place on the all-time list.

Now you can help celebrate the 10th anniversary of the newest piece of major postseason hardware by starting the process of determining which two players should receive this as best overall performers in each league.


Vote through Sept. 15 to determine the club nominee, and then vote in the second phase from Sept. 16-30 to select the winner in each league. The winners will be announced as always before Game 4 at the World Series, a tradition that annually includes Hammerin' Hank himself seated at the podium alongside the offensive stars.

 So basically it is a popularity contest and as such the chances of a Marlin winning it are very slim.  But that doesn't mean you shouldn't vote, they tell me miracles happen.

If you would like to vote for the Marlins players, click here: Vote Now.  You may even win some cool crap.
