I went with Boesch, I thought he'd be great this year.. Him sucking really opening up a big hole at the #2 spot IMO.
I had to vote other, because the whole damn team has been so disappointing. I literally thought every player but Jackson and Verlander would be doing better than they have. I expected Valverde to kind of blow, but he has still managed to disappoint me.
I voted for Fister's injuries but to CB's point, I thought pretty much everyone would be better than the first quarter of the season has shown.
Check back later
The more I think about it, it is sort of a team disappointment. I really don't get that worked up about one individual.
That said, I predicted this. (/elite)
I picked Boesch, since he's done most of his stinking from the plum #2 spot in front of Cabby. It also would be nice to see him as a steady MLB player produced by the farm system. Oh well...
So what are the kids doing these days?

It was a tough choice but I went with Boesch. I didn't expect Peralta to repeat last year so I didn't choose him. I thought Boesch was in a prime spot to have a very good year. I know he has had his 2nd half struggles but still a career .800 OPS I expected at least that or a bit more. Now Boesch just looks like a guy who has zero plate discipline and if you throw him breaking stuff he will just walk back to the dugout. Matt Joyce > Brennan Boesch
Boesch is a good pick, maybe I should have picked him.
I realize I'm putting this here for you to read... but please, don't talk about it.
If you voted for Fielder is based on hitting or fielding?
Zero voted for Porky? I can't wait until this guy is almost 30 and amounted to nothing.
eh, most of those guys were borderline fraudulent. i went with prince mostly because i had no idea he was so bad in the field.
