Vote for Yadi!!!!!

With the season that Yadier Molina is currently having, I figured he would be a shoe-in for starting the all star game. Well since it is actually a popularity contest, Buster Posey must be one charming pig, because I just realized today that he is now the leading vote getter. Let's analyze the two and see if there are ANY stats that back up the result of the voting so far.

Offense Avg G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K OBP SLG OPS

Molina .330 55 203 28 67 14 0 8 32 16 23 .383 .517! .900!

Posey .290 54 193 22 56 12 0 7 33 19 38 .349 .461 .810

Defense Do we even need to do a comparison? I don't follow Posey, and I thought I remember him being decent behind the plate, but he isn't BETTER than Yadi on the whole on defense.

There is simply no defense that Posey is having a better season than Yadi. Like I said earlier, maybe it's a popularity contest (unfathomable!) and Posey is really easy on the eyes.....maybe the general public doesn't like Yadi's neck tattoos anymore. Or maybe some people, like myself, simply assumed Yadi had it locked up with the season he is putting together. Anyhow, go and vote your 25 times if you would like to see our favorite Cardinals catcher start the All Star Game!
