For those of you on Twitter (and come on, who isn't on Twitter by now?), every tweet with the hashtag #MLB13CUTCH counts as one vote.

Non-twitter people can vote here:

It would be pretty awesome to have our own Andrew McCutchen on the cover of the best baseball video game around...

For those who care, it looks like Cutch may win. He's up about 17,000 votes on C.C. Sabathia and voting closes at 8:00 p.m. tonight.

wow..and I was all but certain not to buy it this year. I buy The Show and then TW and NHL comes out and I play those incessantly. Oh well, it's worth $60 to have it and maybe get Cutch to sign it this year.

So, is there any Madden-like curse associated with this game?

Fortunately, it looks like there is no Madden-style curse outside of Joe Mauer getting hurt in 2011. In fact, many hitters enjoyed some great seasons when appearing on the cover (Ryan Howard - 2008, David Wright - 2007, and David Ortiz - 2006.) Adrian Gonzalez did have a bit of a down season by his standards last year, but still hit almost .300.

The Madden curse didn't hold true this season. Calvin Johnson was on the cover.
