Sonnanstine on league list, but ???

Montgomery's Andy Sonnanstine was picked to the Southern League's postseason All-Star team Thursday. Sonnanstine is the league's top right-handed pitcher, but another right-hander is the league's most outstanding pitcher.

Jacksonville's Spike Lundberg, 29, is 14-2 with a 2.36 ERA. Sonnanstine is 15-7 with a 2.77 ERA.

Chattanooga's Joey Votto, to no surprise, won the most valuable player award. Jacksonville's John Shoemaker won the manager of the year award. Shoemaker is the first two-time winner of the award.

No other Biscuit landed on the postseason All-Star team, which is picked in a vote of the league's managers, broadcasters, general managers and beat writers.

I, in my haste to get on the road for Mississippi, failed to mention Craig Brazell, the Jeff Davis grad.

Brazell, who leads the league in RBIs and is tied for second in homers with Votto, made the team as the DH.
