    Re: Most Scrappy Wins.

    I'm going with Votto. First base isn't usually where you'll find the most scrappy player, but Joey is Canadian and is probably missing a few teeth from the hockey, and that's scrappier then american players going to the Gap and stuff.

    Re: Most Scrappy Wins.

    It should be a scrap to the death between Rosales and Taveras. Votto is too smooth to be scrappy.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Rosales doesn't actually exist, he's just a hologram collage of images left over from Ryan Freel, Brady Clark, Chris Stynes, and THE Chris Denorfia.

    Votto only seems "smooth" since he's an exotic international player.

    Re: Most Scrappy Wins.

    I voted for Taveras. I read it wrong and thought it said, "Most Crappy"

    It's absolutely Adam Rosales. He even made it into a commercial for FSN.

    Herrera gets my vote.

    He's the one on the far left.

    When you're shorter than the ball boys, you can't be anything other than scrappy.

    Re: Most Scrappy Wins.

    Hanigan does the most with the least "skills". Hard nosed and scrappy.

    Herrera is a close second. I'm about his height, so if I make him the most scrappy, I'm admitting that shortness is a handicap, which I will never do.

    I only count players who actually do something with their scrappyness, so Taveras and Rosales don't count. Rosales might count next year if he is used in the right role.

    Re: Most Scrappy Wins.

    I vote Alex Gonzalez. It's clear he isn't healthy, yet he's still out there grinding back from injuries. Also, he has 6 sac bunts and 2 HBPs...

    Re: Most Scrappy Wins.

    I voted Phillips, because he has ran into the most outs. I do realize he loses points for actually being good, however.
