Not much to vote on today…you could make the case that Billings or Perlman were the players of the day; and they’re not even in the poll.

How about Bruce Maxwell down in the AZL? 4-4 with 2 doubles and 2 walks yesterday; looks like he’s poised to continue compiling statistics that belong in Triple Play 2000.
