The complete list of players eligible to become the cover athlete for MLB 13: The Show was revealed yesterday with Miguel Cabrera, Buster Posey, C.C. Sabathia, Ryan Braun, Matt Kemp, Bryce Harper, and Andrew McCutchen all in the running. With an odd number of players involved, and the lack of time to conduct an extensive process, that suggests there won’t be a bracket but rather just a single draw with the highest vote-getter receiving the honor.

Being bunched together rather than going head-to-head in a tournament style largely negates any negative push that could be made against a particular player. That could favor C.C. Sabathia as he’ll have strong support from the Yankees fan base and also in that he stands alone as the sole pitcher in the mix. Giants fans also always represent well giving Buster Posey a strong chance of finishing on top and coming off the MVP season and Triple Crown makes Miguel Cabrera an obvious contender. Andrew McCutchen seems to be the guy who is the most appealing to those who are not necessarily a fan of any of the candidates but it still seems hard to imagine a Pirates player topping this field.

With there being no obvious favorite to win the cover of MLB 13: The Show place your selection in the poll below with who you expect to throw your vote/s towards. That will at least provide a picture of how things may ultimately shake out!

    Probably none of the above.

    I’m a Blue Jays fan, so if Bautista had been in the running, I would’ve voted for him, but since he’s not, I can’t really say I care who gets the cover.

      Well this year is the Jay’s year so hopefully next year Joey Bats, Melky, or Jose Reyes will be up for the vote

      • Chris

        Probably not Reyes since he was a 2K cover athlete in the past.

        thats what lakers and tigers fans said. u gather too many stars and play like crap (lakers). or u get swept in ws (tigers).

          How did the Tigers gather too many stars? The only two stars they have in the lineup are Cabrera and Fielder… Jackson isn’t a star yet. Only true star pitcher they have is Verlander…

    • Chris

      In Canada, Jose Bautista was on the cover last year. My guess is that the Canadian cover will go to R “eh” Dickey or Brett Lawrie. I’d vote for Andrew McCutchen for my friends in the US.

      • mcmax3000

        I don’t expect that they’ll do a Canadian cover again this year, but I’d love if they made that a yearly thing with a different Blue Jays player each time.

  • lonnie

    babe ruth,i am serious,look at 2k putting jordon on its cover and than adding the historic teams,the show could put ruth or mantel or better yet wille mays and add historic teams like 2k has in it nba game..i would love a historic mode,they already have a lot of the old time feilds.

    • BoyNamedSuh

      THIS.

  • Scott

    I hate to break it to you, but MLB posted on Facebook the other day that it was going to be Cabrera. There is no “contest”. It’s just a publicity stunt

    • 49ersfan1

      damn posey deserves it more. why would they put the guy that got swept to the other MVP.

      • BoyNamedSuh

        No he doesn’t.

      • sandul

        I understand that the 2 years posey has been healthy, the team has won the WS, but the triple crown hadn’t been achieved in 50 years… it’s kind of a big deal.

        • 49ersfan1

          i know. they should join both of them in 1 cover like nba 2k or make 2 versions like fifa..

          • sandul

            Yeah that works, hell, should have the cy young pitcher throwing to cabrera, with posey as catcher. have 3 players!!!!

          • http://twitter.com/Roggie2499 Tyler Rogoff

            This. Put them both on as a combo deal.

  • Gubmntcheez

    I’d vote for Matt Kemp just on the strength that he was bangin Rhianna

  • pirates1fan

    Cutch all the way!

  • ReelBigMike

    I don’t know how you could vote anyone other than Miguel Cabrera. The guy won the goddamn Triple Crown.

    • 49ersfan1

      posey won the goddamn world series. that matters more.

      • ReelBigMike

        No, the GIANTS won the World Series. CABRERA won the Triple Crown. Covers are about the individual on the cover, not the team he happens to play for.

    2 World Series championships in 3 years and a MVP coming off a possible career ending injury and people are saying Cabrera after the best catcher in the game Buster “muhfuckin” Posey and the Giants just smoked the Tigers? Uhhhhh OK?

    • 49ersfan1

      hell yeah

    • BoyNamedSuh

      Because Miguel Cabrera is the best hitter and arguably the best player in the game? Posey is not.

  • 49ersfan1

    this is easy. its posey. 2 rings in 3 yrs (going to basketball, lebron has 1 since 2003), MVP, and sweeped detroit.

  • BoyNamedSuh

    No disrespect to the other players, but the only one that deserves the cover out of this lot is Miggy. The only one that comes close is Posey, but Miggy had a much better individual year. I’m sorry, but hopefully people aren’t stupid enough to even let this vote be close . . . because it shouldn’t be. Miggy in a landslide. I’ll definitely buy the game if he’s on the cover.

    I could care less as lomg as they improve franchise and RTTS

  • cjweber5187

    I don’t follow baseball too much, but I feel like Trout got snubbed
