That was fun, thanks nuggets! My favorite part?

" And I suspect most fans want to see the best players in the game. That's not to suggest the fans always know who the best players are. But if they did, that's who they'd want to see."

Remember, Scott Rolen (Who I think is amazing, but cmon he hasn't played ) and Nomar were leading at their respective positions in AS voting

Neyer ain't no sabermetrician. He's a popular writing who is very good at explaining sabermetric information to the average Joe.

Right, I misused the word. As far as the ESPN baseball writers go, he's the only one who even talks about sabermetrics.
