"I feel bad Craig Stammen Jersey that people are upset about this; I did the best I could," Chastain said (). "I went around the clubhouse, I asked guys. I agonized over this. The biggest thing for me Ty France Jersey was between (Baltimore closer Zach) Britton and Porcello."
People might not have been quite so upset had he not shownwhat appeared to be blatantfavoritism towardthe AL East.
In the end, Verlander lost by five points after Porcello received 18 second-place votes. Verlander needed only a fourth-place and a third-place nod from Christian Villanueva Jersey the two who left him off to pa s Porcello.
