MLB Network wants you to name the Padres' "Face of the Franchise"

USA TODAY Sports

Each year, MLB Network holds a "Face of MLB" contest in which they determine who fans think is the, well, you know. In order to set the bracket, the network focuses on one team per day and asks fans to name the face of that franchise. Today is the Padres' day.

In order to vote, all you have to do is tweet the name of the player you think is the face of the Friars, along with the hashtag #FaceofPadres, at some point today. If you don't have a Twitter account I don't know what to tell you other than "Get with the times, grandpa." I kid, I kid... but seriously, that's the only way to vote.

Chase Headley won the team title handily last year before getting stomped out in the first round by Paul Konerko, and I've been seeing a lot of votes for him already today. Most of the other votes I've seen have been jokes, as things like this always beget. I haven't put a whole lot of thought into it, but off the top of my head I think Andrew Cashner would be my choice. He's had some injuries, made progress last season toward fulfilling his potential, and is poised to dominate.

Who sayeth you?
