O-Dog beat out BP but I was listening to C Trent and The Bad Boy (on 1530 subbing for Lance)
earlier and one of them said that O-Dog thought BP should have won it. At least the players know what's up.

Good Lord, please abolish this award
Pudge and Beltre seem to be surprises for the AL GG.
Rowand is the only surprise for the NL.
IMO, of course.
As for Phillips getting jobbed over Hudson, I just don't see it. Phillips is a good defender, but he's not Chase Utley or Orlando Hudson. Again, also IMO.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
I lost track of how many Phillies games I attended when I lived in Philly between April 2005 and December 2006, but Chase Utley and Brandon Phillips are both joys to watch in the field. I just think Utley is more polished.
Youkilis was a decent choice for 1B. Kotchman might be a little better there, too. But 3B and 1B are both reasonable, IMO. Even 2B and SS aren't completely awful choices, either, there's no totally inexplicable Jeter type among the IFers.
