Butler deserves all star write in votes?

According to Dick Kaegel he does.
Maybe it's time for Royals fans to show their support for Billy Butler in the All-Star Game. It'll require write-in votes, however.

Now I know I'm sometimes guilty of flagrant homerism but even I think this is a stretch. Don't get me wrong because I absolutely have no problem with KC fans voting for Royals players but to say Butler deserves it is a little on the ridiculous side. I see some of Kaegel's point in that Butler isn't on the ballot so the only way to vote for him is to write his name in, makes sense. But then Keagel adds:
Even so, a groundswell of support could get him notice when the selections are made for the All-Star reserves..

So Keagel actually believes Butler should be on the team. This would be a worse selection than Harvey in 2004 (should have been Sweeney). Besides KC has an actual legitimate candidate in Greinke who most likely will start the game. Back to Butler though, he is batting .283/.336/.430 which doesn't exactly scream all star. His batting average ranks 8th among AL 1st baseman while his OBP and SLG pct put him 11th and 12th. He'll be an all star some day but it won't be in 2009, nor should it be.

I'd be pretty surprised if we have a position player in the All-Star Game this year, but if we did, why not Callaspo? He's hitting .318/.367/.479 with an 18 doubles and an OPS+ of 124. Not saying he should be an all-star, but I'd say he's more deserving that Butler.

Jeff Parker said...

I totally agree. Callaspo wouldn't be a bad pick at all. I think this was just a case of Kaegel being Kaegel.
