WPA All Star ballot for May 17

Per this, I am casting an All Star Game ballot online every two days until the July 2 deadline, basing my choices on the top Win Probability Added for each position in each league, because All Stars tend to make the most plays (which boost WPA) while letting their respective teams down in key situations (which would reduce WPA) the least.

American League

1B Justin Morneau - MIN
2B Aaron Hill - TOR
SS Marco Scutaro - TOR
3B Michael Young - TEX
C Victor Martinez - CLE
OF Jason Bay - BOS
OF Adam Jones - BAL
OF Johnny Damon - NYY

National League

1B Joey Votto - CIN
2B Orlando Hudson - LAD
SS Edgar Renteria - SFG
3B David Wright - NYM
C Bengie Molina - SFG
OF Raul IbaƱez - PHI
OF Alfonso Soriano - CHC
OF Manny Ramirez - LAD
(OF Carlos Beltran - NYM)

As explained before, Manny's cumulative WPA is in the top three and is on the ballot despite his drug suspension, but I have included an honorable mention in parentheses in case you want to follow along but are morally opposed to voting for Manny.
