Tout NL Trade: Zola and Hertz

The picture is of Ike Davis, because Phil Hertz opened a slot on his active roster for Davis on April 26 by trading Marlins first baseman Gaby Sanchez and Arizona outfielder Chris Young to Todd Zola for a pair of Ryans: Cubs pitcher Dempster and Pirates outfielder Church.

“And with that, Phil Hertz begins the Ike Davis era,” said Larry Schechter.

“I prefer to look at it as the end of the Micah Hoffpauir era myself :(” said Todd Zola.

Who do you think will win? Polls Closed!

Last year’s polls didn’t select any winners. Readers thought ESPN would sweep Tout Wars in 2009, voting for Eric Karabell, Nate Ravitz and Matthew Berry.

Instead, Creativesports.com took two of three leagues (Lawr Michaels and Brian Walton), with Rotowire’s Chris Liss winning the mixed.

Now you can vote for those who you thought drafted the best teams in 2010. Vote for Mixed in this post, and the AL and NL leagues in the sidebar.

UPDATE! This Year’s Winners, the Poll Says:

AL: Matt Berry 37%, Jason Grey 14%, Mike Siano 8%
NL: Nate Ravitz 23%, Tristan Cockcroft 19%, Chris Liss 10%
MIX: Eric Mack 25%, Eric Karabell 22%, Seth Trachtman 12%
