AN Community Hottie List - Vote for #1

There is a very important question that needs to be answered in this off-season: Now that Travis and Chavvy are gone, who is AN's favorite hottie on the team? We must research this.

Fortunately, AN already has a methodology, over on the serious side of the blog. Zonis has kindly given me permission to copy the system he uses for the AN Community Prospect Poll. The difference is that over there they are ranking the guys in the farm system based on how good we think they will be at baseball, whereas here we will rank the guys on the major-league roster based on how good-looking we think they are.

The poll will list five candidates. Vote for the one you think is the hottest. If your top choice is not one of the ones listed, vote for write-in and tell us in the comments who you choose.

All AN members are welcome to vote, regardless of gender or sexual preference. Straight guys, it's OK to judge how good-looking men are, so don't be shy. Go ahead and vote. It won't make you gay, I promise.

The winner of the first poll will be ranked #1 and then we'll have a new poll for the #2 spot, and so on. To be eligible, a player must currently be on the team's 40-man roster. We'll continue the poll until people lose interest, I run out of gas, or until we've ranked all 40 of them, whichever comes first.

For the first poll I'm just guessing at who I think the five leading candidates are, but I'll need hints for whom to add in later rounds, so if there's a candidate you want to see added, make a comment saying "I nominate [so-and-so] for next round". If the hottie you like already has a nomination comment, recommend the comment.

Feel free to share opinions or analysis of the hotness of the players. Or point us to better pictures, if you know of any.

Round #1 candidates

#47
Gio Gonzalez
5'11", 205 lbs
born Sep 19, 1985 (Virgo)

Pitcher, a regular in the starting rotation. Acquired before the 2008 season in the Swisher trade. Famous for his "Ojos Locos" TV ad.

[no number]
Rich Harden
6'1", 195 lbs
born Nov 30, 1981 (Sagittarius)

Pitcher. Former starter for the A's, traded away mid-season 2008. Signed again just before Christmas for a one-year contract as a free agent, he will be given a chance to compete for the last starting spot.

#28
Conor Jackson
6'2", 215 lbs
born May 7, 1982 (Taurus)

Outfielder, aka "New Guy" even though he isn't new any more, famous for his eyebrows. Acquired mid-season last year, looks like he'll probably be a 4th or 5th OFer this year.

#15
Ryan Sweeney
6'4", 225 lbs
born Feb 20, 1985 (Pisces)

Outfielder, aka "Swooney". Acquired before the 2008 season in the Swisher trade. A traditional favorite, he missed a lot of time last year due to injury, so we didn't see as much of him.

[no number]
Josh Willingham
6'2", 215 lbs
born Feb 17, 1979 (Aquarius)

Outfielder, acquired in trade just last month. Supposedly he's going to add power to our lame offense.
