Fans choose Andrew McCutchen for cover of “MLB ’13 The Show”

20 Comments

We told you about the fan vote for the cover of “MLB ’13 The Show” earlier this week, so we might as well let you know that after five days of voting (and heavy campaigning by all parties on Twitter), Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen was declared the winner.

McCutchen was trailed by CC Sabathia, Miguel Cabrera, Matt Kemp, Bryce Harper, Buster Posey and Ryan Braun. Check out the full results here, if you are so inclined.

Here’s McCutchen expressing his gratitude via his Twitter account:

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to dust off my NES and turn on some RBI Baseball. I’ll tell ya, that chunky guy that’s supposed to be Vince Coleman can’t be stopped!

Yesterday the New York Yankees got Aaron Judge back. Today they activated closer Aroldis Chapman.

Chapman has been on the disabled list since August 22 with left knee tendinitis. Before going down the 30-year-old fireballer registered a 2.11 ERA and 31 saves with an 84/27 K/BB ratio in 47 innings of work.

In his absence David Robertson, Dellin Betances and Zach Britton have all been bumped an inning back to decidedly mixed results. Now Chapman is back in the mix.
