In the past week, David Wright has closed the gap on Placido Polanco for the starting slot at third base by nearly 118,000 votes.
118,000 votes! In a week!
That’s 16,857 votes per day. Trailing by just 22,635 as of this morning and with just under 60 hours to go before ballots close, should Wright gain at the rate of 16,000+ per day over the next 2 1/2 days, he could gain another 40,000 votes and earn the starting nod by 18,000. I’m no math man, but that seems plausible to me.
