All-Star Voting Sucks

Post  HurpDurpHurray on June 26th 2012, 12:56 am

http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20120625&content_id=33893720&vkey=news_mlb&c_id=mlb

Let's look at the stats:

Fielder (first in voting): .304 BA, 11 homers, 45 RBIs
Konerko (second in voting): .337 BA, 13 homers, 39 RBIs
Billy Butler (NOT EVEN IN TOP 5): .294 BA, 14 homers, 44 RBIs

Jeter (first in voting): .304 BA, 7 homers, 25 RBIs, 6 SB
Aviles (NOT EVEN IN TOP 5): .262 BA, 9 homers, 41 RBIs, 8 SB

Mike Napoli (first in voting): .240, 12 homers, 30 RBIs
AJ Pierzynski (fourth in voting): .284, 12 homers, 41 RBIs

David Ortiz (first in voting): .300, 18 homers, 49 RBIs
Edwin Encarnacion (NOT EVEN IN TOP 5 FOR DH OR 1B!): .280, 21 homers, 50 RBIs

Nelson Cruz (fourth in voting): .262 BA, 11 homers, 47 RBI's
Adam Jones (FIFTH in voting): .300 BA, 19 homers, 40 RBI's
Josh Willingham (NOT EVEN FUCKING TOP 15): .275 BA, 15 homers, 49 RBIs
Josh Reddick (AGAIN, NOT TOP 15): .268 BA, 17 homers, 39 RBIs

AND SOMEONE BETTER FUCKING EXPLAIN TO ME HOW YOU CAN BE LOSING IN VOTING TO ONE GUY THAT HAS PLAYED 9 GAMES (Brett Gardner) AND ANOTHER THAT HAS PLAYED 7 (Jacoby Ellsbury).

Maybe it's because the Rangers got Yu and we get the Asians voting,kinda like Yao Ming.I know they are from different countries but it seems kinda similar,and with Cruz possibly starting something has to be up.

So there's your shit All Star game rosters. Edwin Encarnacion gets robbed. How can a guy with a .289 average and who is 5th in homers and 7th in RBIs not get in? Oh right, he doesn't get in if he plays for the Blue Jays
