Didn't you already vote for Darvish? I'm the only one who voted for Aoki, no need to change your vote.

I still think Darvish has had the best year. Cepsedes, Aoki, and Chen have had big impacts, and Iwakuma has been pretty good as well, but Darvish has had a big time year. His stats looks less than impressive, but he plays in a great hitter's park, and he's been a bit unlucky. His record is good, and his strikouts and walks balance out imo. Value wise, I think Chen and Aoki have been the best, but there is a reason Darvish is making as much as he is. I think he has a real chance at improving from this year to next, and then maintaining a high level of production, if he stays healthy, unlike many NPB imports. He just has really great stuff.

All of the imports have held their own in the World's Best League. Initially, I thought Seattle was going to use Iwakuma in their Starting rotation, but opted instead to use him out of the bullpen. Iwakuma should have been MVP of the 2009 WBC, instead they gave it to Daisuke Matsuzaka.

Oh yeah, I forgot, though. Back before I said Darvish, but now I'm going with Cespedes. Is it not allowed to change votes or something?

Relax, I was just picking on you for waffling. Of course you can change your vote.

I think it's been Cespedes. Darvish had a rough patch after a fantastic April and has been really good recently but in a year where Mike Trout has run away with the Rookie of the Year Award, Cespedes was still playing respectable enough in which he would be the frontrunner in nearly every other year.
