Pick the 2021 All-MLB Team

The Dodgers lead the way with 10 nominees, including at least one player at every position except second base. Those candidates are catcher Will Smith; first baseman Max Muncy; shortstops Trea Turner and Corey Seager; third baseman Justin Turner; outfielder Mookie Betts (a First Team All-MLB selection in 2020 and a Second Team All-MLB pick in ‘19); starting pitchers Max Scherzer (a 2019 First Team All-MLB selection), Walker Buehler and Julio Urías; and reliever Kenley Jansen.

The White Sox paced all AL clubs with nine nominees, including five pitchers. They have a trio of starters—Lance Lynn, Dylan Cease and Carlos Rodón—in the running, as well as their dominant bullpen duo of Liam Hendriks (a First Team All-MLB selection in 2020 and a Second Team All-MLB pick in ‘19) and Craig Kimbrel.

Why do they make you give all this personal info to vote - why does everyone need to gather data on you ?

Somebody didn't watch Kimbrel pitch for the White Sox.

why does everyone need to gather data on you ?

You have only two things of value -- money and information that aids in the extraction of your money. Since online ads aren't very effective and therefore nobody tends to pay too much for them, selling your info is how those who give you free goods can make money. If we don't read ad-supported newspapers, won't watch ad-supported broadcast TV, cut the cord on pay TV, will only pay a few $ a month to stream services that don't feed us ads ...
