MLB 13: The Show Cover Voting Opens

Posted January 7th, 2013 at 9:30 am


The voting for which player will receive the honor of appearing on the cover of MLB 13: The Show has now begun. The nominees were announced last month as Buster Posey, Ryan Braun, C.C. Sabathia, Bryce Harper, Miguel Cabrera, Andrew McCutchen, and Matt Kemp.

Voting is being conducted through the site here – where a tweet or Facebook post will register the support – and ends on Friday. Given the proximity to MLB 13’s release date a short voting time frame was to be expected. Based on the earlier polling this could boil down to a race between Cabrera and Posey with an outside shot for McCutchen or Harper.

    ugh I hate the way these companies try to get cheap Twitter and Facebook talk going through cover votes.

      People stopped caring about these things awhile ago. I think the advertising cost might exceed the additional sales at this point.

      Been there, seen that.

    I’m a Cards fan but got a vote in for McCutchen — 20 years is a long time to go without a winning baseball team, Pirate fans deserve something to be happy about.

    • Same reason I’m voting for Harper – yeah, they got a playoff team now but it was a tough way to go down last year and Washington hadn’t had a winner (and for a long stretch, not even a team) in 80+ years. A vote for Harper or McCutchen is a great vote in my book.

    Only 1 pitcher (Sabathia) to choose from?? I voted Posey since the Giants did win the WS

  • Brian

    When Posey is healthy, the Giants have never not won the World Series

  • Hammer

    I voted for CUTCH!
