  1. Conner012367 - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:11 PM

    So when do we know about the pitchers for the American and National leagues?

  2. theinconvienenttruth - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:13 PM

    Us fans are getting the NL OF wrong, besides Gonzalez. I would rather see Carlos Gomez, Dominic Brown, or Jay Bruce.

    • paperlions - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:38 PM

      Bruce really isn’t in the conversation. Beltran has been the best hitting non-Coors Field aided OF in the NL this year.

      • threefingerclown - Jul 2, 2013 at 6:57 PM

        For the record:
        CarGo at Coors: .280 avg, 10 hr, .959 ops
        CarGo on the road: .312 avg, 12 hr, .976 ops

      • paperlions - Jul 2, 2013 at 7:02 PM

        Hitting no better at Coors so far this year does not mean it still didn’t help. Coors always helps as whatever a hitter does there would not have been as productive had the exact same performance occurred in a neutral environment (e.g. it is still likely that some HRs he hit in Coors would not have been HRs if they were hit somewhere else). The environment always helps hitters, even if you don’t see it in the splits.

      • thomas844 - Jul 2, 2013 at 7:33 PM

        Granted I still think Beltran is a better choice, but don’t sell Bruce short, he’s pretty close to Beltran offensively and is a better defensive outfielder.

        Beltran: .308 AVG, .896 OPS, 19 HR, 50 RBI, 10 2B, 44 R, 88 H
        Bruce: .281 AVG, .851 OPS, 18 HR, 56 RBI, 25 2B, 46 R, 94 H

        I’ll take Beltran as a starter, but Bruce deserves to be in the conversation.

      • Glenn - Jul 2, 2013 at 9:47 PM

        Paperlions – you are 100% correct but it seems that people are missing your point. Bill James wrote a great piece (of course) explaining what you are saying.

      • fantasyparx - Jul 3, 2013 at 5:18 PM

        Glenn, it’s not everyone else that’s missing the point, it’s you. It’s not the accuracy of his statement that is in question (though it should be, which I’ll explain in a moment), but rather the relevance. His splits prove that whatever aid he may be getting from Coors field is quite obviously not needed and not responsible for his stellar first half. Furthermore, Bill James is not the sabermetric genius people think he is. He is a brilliant statistician, but routinely fails to to consider important baseball factors that are difficult to quantify. I don’t know whether this is because he is unaware of them, or he simply deems them too difficult to objectively measure and therefore decides to ignore them, but it’s a major flaw in his work. He always takes into consideration the easy to quantify variables of field dimensions and elevation, but fails to consider more nuanced variables. One such variable would be the fact that because of the “Coors effect” teams often shuffle rotations in order to have their best ground ball pitchers on the mound at Coors, which can have an adverse effect on hitters who have greater success against fly ball or even strikeout pitchers. Another tacit and erroneous assumption in James’ work is that the reduced movement on pitches will always benefit the batter, when in reality there will be some, though not many, batters who are excellent breaking ball and curveball hitters who struggle with high velocity pitches, and these hitters will see a higher percentage of fastballs thrown at an increased velocity due to the thin air in Denver, as smart pitchers will rely less on movement and more on velocity and pinpoint control when pitching in Coors. And then there’s also the more abstract and individualized factor of the batter’s field of vision in a given stadium. Some hitters simply see the ball better or worse in different stadiums. These are all important factors (and I’m sure there’s more, as I’m no baseball savant) that James neglects to factor into his work.

        You’ve made two critical mistakes. The first was taking the word of Bill James as sacrosanct. The second was not knowing how to practically apply empirical data to relevant situations.

  3. lyon810 - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:17 PM

    Who cares

    • spursareold - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:38 PM

      You posted, so you do.

  4. mvpolamalu - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:22 PM

    Only changes I’d make are Pedroia over cano, goldschmidt over votto, segura over Crawford (since tulos injured) and Gomez and brown over Beltran and upton

  5. tc4306 - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:31 PM

    I’d have Encarnation as ahead of Berkman as the #2 DH. Other than that, hard to argue with the AL selections.

  6. nysportsrule - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:32 PM

    Harvey better be one of the pitchers, possibly even start for the NL

  7. valarmorghuliss - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:33 PM

    How’s about we put Machado at SS and forget the whole SS voting in the AL?

    • paperlions - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:39 PM

      No kidding, that list is embarrassing.

      • paperlions - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:43 PM

        Of course, the NL list isn’t any better after Tulo, who is hurt, again.

      • valarmorghuliss - Jul 2, 2013 at 7:09 PM

        Put him at SS and he may have lead the AL in voting this year.

  8. dondada10 - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:39 PM

    Few notes:

    David Wright with a nice lead over Sandoval!

    Third base in the AL is stack.

    I guess a lot of people don’t realize how good Carlos Gomez

  9. theaxmancometh - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:41 PM

    Crawford ahead of Segura is a joke. As is Kozma being top 5.

    • heyblueyoustink - Jul 2, 2013 at 8:21 PM

      Trot, is that really you?

  10. threefingerclown - Jul 2, 2013 at 5:47 PM

    Didn’t expect him to win a starting spot or anything, but poor Michael Cuddyer can’t even crack the top 15 NL OFs? That’s more than sad, it’s criminal.

  11. Stiller43 - Jul 2, 2013 at 6:00 PM

    Holy crap. Do O’s fans have nothing better to do than to stuff the MLB all start ballot box for their guys?

    • neoshweaty - Jul 2, 2013 at 6:26 PM

      Let em have their fun, man. Don’t know how old you are but I don’t really remember an Orioles team that was a contender from one year to the next. Might as well enjoy it and send in a few votes for your favorite players in retaliation.

      • scoutsaysweitersisabust - Jul 2, 2013 at 8:43 PM

        Mid 1990s

    • historiophiliac - Jul 2, 2013 at 6:32 PM

      Some of the rest of us voted for O’s players too, you know.

    • nbjays - Jul 2, 2013 at 7:14 PM

      “Holy crap. Do O’s fans have nothing better to do than to stuff the MLB all start ballot box for their guys?”

      Really, because Yankees or Giants fans would never do such a thing…

      /sarcasm

      • dcarroll73 - Jul 3, 2013 at 12:16 AM

        And a fan of both the Yankees AND Giants is OUTRAGED, I say outraged, that Jeter is not in his annointed spot and Posey, Belt, Scutaro, Sandoval, and Crawford (in proper positional order) are not all leading (hey, I had a rough June so cut me some slack.)

    • scoutsaysweitersisabust - Jul 2, 2013 at 8:40 PM

      With the exception of Mat Wieters (Who is probably getting most of his votes simply due to being a more recognized name), absolutely everyone on the list is deserving of their position. Tell me how you can possibly argue against Chris Davis, Adam Jones, Manny Machado, or Nick Markakis. Davis and Jones you can’t argue against. Nick Markakis is not quite a starter, (where he should be at). Manny would be a starter if not for sharing a position with the best hitter in the game. I’ll give you Peralta over Hardy, although you could make a case for either one as Peralta has the average, but Hardy is showing the deep threat, and defensively, they are about split.

  12. msharpless987 - Jul 2, 2013 at 6:19 PM

    How is Jason Kipnis & Everth Cabrera not in the top 5?
    John Buck over Rasario?

    The whole NL Shortstop top 5 is a joke. Kozma and Simmons have more votes then Ian Desmond, Starlin Castro and Jimmy Rollins? I Understand Castro and Rollins with there performance this season but Ian Desmond?

    The NL Roster could be the opening day lineup of the Cardinals

    • jahwerb - Jul 2, 2013 at 7:58 PM

      I agree. Where is Desmond?? I get Tulo and Segura but Crawford, Kozma, and Simmons couldn’t hold Desmond’s jock when it comes to #s

  13. nbjays - Jul 2, 2013 at 6:21 PM

    Two glaring errors on the AL list:

    1/ Berkman > Encarnacion for DH? Really? In what alternate reality?

    2/ No Jason Kipnis in the top 5 at 2B? Is someone on crack?

    Also, nice to see Jose Reyes in the 5th spot at SS in the AL. Otherwise we’d be dealing with the absolute embarrassment of having Derek Jeter in the top 5. (at least Tulo in the NL has played a bit this year).

  14. hojo20 - Jul 2, 2013 at 6:44 PM

    HOw many per roster now? 60? The ASG is a joke.

  15. heyblueyoustink - Jul 2, 2013 at 6:52 PM

    Dom Brown, 15th place.

    At least B.J. Upton isn’t still ahead of him.

  16. lions81slappy - Jul 2, 2013 at 6:55 PM

    do the fans that vote even watch baseball. noticed victor martinez and Josh hamilton on here. I’m supposed to believe there is no better option at dh and of respectively? please stop voting for a name

  17. opinevain - Jul 2, 2013 at 6:55 PM

    Orioles well represented!

  18. lions81slappy - Jul 2, 2013 at 6:56 PM

    what I mean to say is they shouldn’t even be in the discussion

  19. mophatici - Jul 2, 2013 at 7:22 PM

    Segura deserves it. Anyone who can manage to steal first base after they’ve already stolen second should represent the best of the NL.

  20. thomas844 - Jul 2, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    Thank God CarGo finally made his way to the top 3. Now we just need to get Upton out of there and we are set to go. Go NL!!!

  21. chunkala - Jul 2, 2013 at 9:50 PM

    Everything looking good except Upton.

  22. theanswer0381 - Jul 2, 2013 at 10:51 PM

    how is Dom Brown only #15? thats a joke

  23. pghcityofchamps - Jul 2, 2013 at 10:57 PM

    This list is a bunch of crap…..the Pirates has the BEST record in ALL OF baseball, and the BEST ERA in baseball with the BEST bullpen….yet they have 1, count him….1 player on the list. Andrew McCutchen, and he is 6th on the outfielders list!!!! That is pure bullshit and just a slap in the face

    • nbjays - Jul 4, 2013 at 8:35 AM

      Name another Pirates player who is better than everyone else in the league at his position.

  24. sheriffpeyton18 - Jul 3, 2013 at 4:42 AM

    Dbacks Parra should be able to make the team. He has been phenomenal!!

    • richyballgame - Jul 3, 2013 at 2:12 PM

      I think he got hurt at Citi Field two days ago.
