I guess it just depends on your philosophy of picking who should be on the team. I think a guy should have a track record. Others don't. I respect that. I just don't agree.
For me to say a rookie should be in the game, to me it should only be rookies like Gooden, Fernando, Pujols, guys where there is no question. If you have to debate it, then he doesn't belong.
