David Ortiz wasn’t on the ballot on Tuesday -- only two men were: Marty Walsh and John Connolly -- but the Red Sox’ DH got the most write-in votes out of anyone, so that technically made him the third place finisher.

Not that it was particularly close. There were only 560 write-in votes, of which Ortiz got the most. The winner got over 72,000 votes. But it’s a pretty good showing for a guy who doesn’t play any defense.
