WPA All Star ballot for May 23

I was out Thursday night and didn't get a chance to do this for May 21, so we'll make this a double ballot. I will cast two ballots with today's results.

To recap, 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 - Jason Bartlett (TBR)
3B - Brandon Inge (DET)
C - Jorge Posada (NYY)
OF - Jason Bay (BOS)
OF - Adam Jones (BAL)
OF - Johnny Damon (NYY)

National League

1B - Nick Johnson (WAS)
2B - Orlando Hudson (LAD)
SS - Hanley Ramirez (FLA)
3B - David Wright (NYM)
C - John Baker (FLA)
OF - Raul IbaƱez (PHI)
OF - Scott Hairston (SDP) (Write-in)
OF - Manny Ramirez (LAD)
(OF - Carlos Beltran (NYM))

With Manny Ramirez still in the top three, I continue to include an honorable mention for anyone who wishes to participate but is morally opposed for any reason to voting for Manny.
