2013 through Friday, July 5th:
Hanley Ramirez - 30 games, 7 HR, 20 RBI, 4 SB, .455 OBP, .498 wOBA, 1.9 WAR
Yasiel Puig -------- 30 games, 8 HR, 19 RBI, 4 SB, .449 OBP, .489 wOBA, 1.9 WAR

For all the guys clamoring for Puig to get into the all star game... why aren't you also lobbying for his teammate Hanley?
They've put up identical lines, but I havent heard a single person say that Ramirez deserves to go.

FYI....the outfield wall went on the 7-Day DL for a concussion and not Puig.

;-D


ETA: The Giants and Bumgarner's approach tonight seems to be aimed at targeting Puig at his known weak spot.

2KOs so far. It will be interesting to see if he makes an adjustment or takes home a golden sombrero.

It's because Puig is doing that in his first month ever playing baseball. It is more exciting and that is what people want to watch. If the all-star game was just about stats there would be no need to vote.

Yes people are understandly way more excited about Puig.
And that line of reasoning would hold water IF it was just an exhibition.
But the game "matters" now, so I'm not sure I buy that argument.
I just feel like players should get at least some recognition for both the 2nd half of the previous season, and for playing a majority of their team's games.

Sure I agree with that. But it was asked why people are excited for Puig and not Hanley, not how the voting should be determined. There aren't detailed instructions on how fans should vote, people just pick their favorites and that will never change. The only thing you could change is if it is exhibition or not, but that won't change how people vote or get excited about who they vote for.

If it's an exhibition I want to see Puig play because he's one of the hottest player in MLB and he's entertaining to watch. If it's a meaningful game I want Puig to play because he's one of the hottest players in MLB.

the quadrant seemed to move towards the center today and Puig is still in a funk. 2 KOs today (and 1 single) so far. I will be very interesting to see what develops in terms of his adjustment, manager's intervention/coaching and how the next pitching staff plans to attack him. I know that the Dodgers and Giants have a heated rivalry and they basically hate each other...without mixing in the Bochy ASG controversy. So I have a feeling that the Giants staff chose to exploit his weakness to the fullest with a heavy dose of inside pitches and basically NOTHING OUTSIDE. The one hit that he got came on a first pitch strike that was straight down the middle and right over the plate.

Ya not a bad line today. The part that troubles me though is some of the pitches he is swinging through. I mean the ones right down the middle.
