It's always interesting to see what MLBTR readers think in our polls, especially with thousands of votes coming in. Looking through four February 2011 polls, how have you done?
- 26% of you thought the Phillies' signing of Cliff Lee was the best move of the offseason, with the Boston's acquisition of Adrian Gonzalez (20%), the Blue Jays' trade of Vernon Wells (18%), and the Brewers' acquisition of Zack Greinke (11%) all ranking highly. Those were all solid picks. About 4% of you chose a move not listed, and we can only wonder who was thinking of the Jose Bautista extension, the trades of Cameron Maybin or J.J. Hardy, the signings of Lance Berkman, Jhonny Peralta, Melky Cabrera, Brandon McCarthy, and Bartolo Colon, and many other standout moves.
- 72% of you would not have offered Bautista a five-year, $64MM extension; that's why Alex Anthopoulos deserves a raise.
- 39% of you thought Chris Carpenter would be traded, 37% thought the Cardinals would pick up his option, and 24% thought he'd stay with the Cards but they would not pick up his option. Carpenter re-signed before his option came up, validating the 24%.
- Mike Axisa listed five potential landing spots for Michael Young, but 25% of you thought he'd be dealt to a team not listed, and that was the top answer. Only 12% of you rightly predicted Young would not be dealt.
