The fans of Boston continue to stuff the ballot box with hometown favories instead of who is most deserving.
Justin Morneau is batting 309 with 18 HR's
Miguel Cabrera is batting 330 with 16 HR's
Victor Martinez 314 with 14 HR's
Kevin Youkilis is such a force offensively that he doesn't start in my fantasy league. I'm in a ten team league and you tell me which one of these guys you would sit for Youkilis
Pujols, Cabrera, Berkman, Fielder, Morneau, Teixeira, Gonzalez, Pena, Howard, Martinez
Youkilis has numbers that are more comparable to Todd Helton. That would be fine if we were talking about Helton in his prime. After all this is Youkilis peaking and Helton dwindling. As far as career goes Youkilis isn't in the same conversation as Helton.
So I ask,.....how does a player who is not even one of the 10 best at his position get to be an all star. The so called knowledgeable fans of Boston is how. Your sports opinion can't be taken seriously with such homerish antics.
You want to talk about defense. I agree Youkilis is better than some, maybe most. I'll tell you something else. Some of those guys are better than you think as well.
