That's actually true. Mazzilli was always given the nickname "Mazz" in print.
Anyway, I always liked Lee, and though I'm sorry to see him go, I wish him luck in Baltimore.
Everytime I see Lee Mazzilli's name in print, it reminds me that the Rangers traded Ron Darling and Walt Terrell for him. That might have been worse than the Harold Baines trade. Geez, no wonder the Rangers never have and probably never will have any pitching (CHAN HO!!!).
An article posted at MLB.com at 5:01 this morning says that the order of placement in each Final Vote is as follows: AL: Liriano, Pierzynski, Hafner, Verlander, and Hernandez. NL: Garciparra, Capuano, Abreu, Wagner, and Young.
