Who writes the polls at the Urinal?

I have no idea why this irked me, but it does and it's stupid.

The Journal has an online poll going on the front page; "Who should play 3rd for the Brewers?"

The options:
Bill Hall
Craig Counsell
Mike Lamb
Mat Gamel
Casey McGhee

The urinal found it prudent to include Casey McGhee but didn't find the likely outcome of PLATOON necessary? What sense does that make? That's like putting a poll up of who should play 1st base and not making Prince Fielder and option.

In order to see the results I had to vote (I picked Gamel because if we're going to have a single person there I want some upside). Apparently stupid writing draws stupid readers, because Bill Hall is running away with the poll at 46%. Did the MLB banish right handed pitchers?

If they put "Platoon" as an option people would think they meant the movie.

I'd prefer Tom Berenger to Craig Counsell.

Me too. You can never have too many catchers.
