    I agree with you Jeff. Once again an undeserving Dodger takes an award away from a Phillie. Yesterday Hudson stole a GG from Utley and today Kemp steals a SS from Werth.

    What shag said…

    I think that Werth and Kemp are close… you could argue for a lot of guys… Ibanez, Dunn and Hawpe had better OPS numbers than both Werth and Kemp. I do feel like the Phillies deserved two SS’ers.

    The biggest snub, in my opinion, is Pudgy Panda… Sandoval’s numbers are better than Zimmerman’s… 2nd highest BA in the NL, 6th in slugging percentage… Zimmerman had more runs and more RBI’s but Adam Dunn had a lot to do with that… the two flip-flopped spots in the batting order all season. The Giants had no one… Rowand, Fred Lewis, Juan Uribe, Benji Molina, Edgar Renteria… that lineup is terrible.
