The 2004 Cafe Fantasy All-Star Team

Postby Arlo » Sun Sep 19, 2004 12:52 pm

This summer, Cafe visitors voted for the 2004 fantasy All-Star team. Now, with summer coming to an end, let's take a look at the results!

Did the voters get it right? :-)

Wow, an All-Star list with no Bonds, Pujols, or Beltran? 8-o Really weird to see that.

Even with the good season out of Edmonds, I'd put Barry in there over him.

Thome/Pujols, I'd lean to Pujols too.

Then it leaves Beltran. Bonds/Vlad is (would be) solid, but it is tough to overlook Abreu's season. I'd have a hard time deciding between those two. :-?

Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I think when the polls were done, there were better options than Beltran so I like most of the choices for all-star team selections, though I would've liked to see Ortiz get the nod at 1b.

That team does need a vasecThome (sorry). Pujols deserves the start.

I had a feeling some of these would be controversial... :-)

In some cases, I do think multi-position eligibility hurt players. Speedsters probably had a hard time, too, since points-leaguers wouldn't value them as highly as roto players. As to Bonds, well, that's another story...

LOL

pujols should've gotten the nod over thome. and bonds over edmonds would make more sense to me to.

can't really go wrong with the other choices though. ;-D

I would really liked to have seen A Beltre on this list. I think he was a true All Star last year.
