Bobby Valentin has been the straw that stirred the Busch this season. he is on a pace to set a career high in HR, BA, OBP, and OPS. He has been the disrupter that keeps the team moving.
Going back to the last entry though. How does a 2nd/third place team that is 2.5 out of the second wild card slot and 1.5 out of the division warrant two all star candidates? It doesn't. Both players get on base but neither has the counting stats of the other players on the ballot.
