saw the show... was a cool show actually. AJ, Iguchi and Dye were nominated for their positions. Of course, they slobbered and drooled all over JeterJeterPumpkinEater and David Ortiz.

EDIT: I was watching Channel 11 (a friend of mine is running for office and was on Chicago Tonight) so I missed the segment on third basemen. Did Crede get a mention? They had LOTS of shots and highlights of Crede... so I assumed they nominated him.

thought it was funny when they were showing the candidates for SS and they displayed that michael young hit something like .420 with RISP, jeter hit .380, yet jeter somehow wins the award.... makes sense i guess.

Umm does Young add a fancy yet unneccesary little 180 degree hop, skip and jump to his throws......... I think not.

Yeah until Michael Young gets late read on grounds and is forced to outstrech himself run and throw at the same time he'll never be as good as Jeter. Plus do you blame Jeter, he had to put up with that awful A-Rod all season.

It was based on fan voting. It came to me in an e-mail from mlb.com.

Did anyone watch the Kruk awards last night on ESPN? I thought they were pretty funny and cool. I always thought Kruk was a good guy. He's one of those guys I would love to have dinner with not just to see how much he can eat but some of the stories he has from baseball.

That doesn't mean he isn't a 2B. When the Rangers traded ARod for Soriano, they moved Young from second base to SS. He is a much better defensive 2B than he is a SS.

Iguchi sustained a significant shoulder injury and after recovery was unable to play SS because he didn't have the shoulder strength tho make the throws from SS.

I'm not really sure what your point is here. Michael Young is a natural 2B but is a great athlete and defender. When the Rangers needed him to play SS he was able to do so and has been successful playing there.. that's all I'm saying.

yikes. my point was that someone asked if michael young was a 2nd baseman, i said he plays SS, ian kinsler is the 2B for the rangers. i didn't think i needed to chronicle the history of michael young's defensive career, nor did i say that he never played 2B... that's what i was alluding to with the iguchi comment. lots of players switch positions, would you say paul konerko isn't a first baseman because he was originally brought up as a catcher? or that soriano isn't a leftfielder because he played 2B before that? probably not. if somebody asks me who plays 2B for the rangers, i wouldn't say "michael young used to" i would say ian kinsler. didn't mean to start anything.

Wright's a good player, but what has he ever done that was particularly clutch? I guess it makes sense that he would win since he plays in New York and the fans voted for this, but Crede is more clutch.
