Okajima finished with more than 4.4 million votes to close this one out ahead of Jeremy Bonderman of the Tigers, Pat Neshek of the Twins, Kelvim Escobar of the Angels and Roy Halladay of the Blue Jays.

I think Chris Young was definitely deserving of going, so good for him. Okajima...I'm not sure. Neshek arguably had better numbers, and Bonderman/Escobar are having great seasons. But Okajima did have 2 "nations" supporting him to get there, so it wasn't surprising to see the result there.
Neshek had better numbers? I know he had 12 more K's but what else?
