Chronicle Live: Giants fans stuff the ballot box
Does Pablo Sandoval really deserve to start over David Wright? The Chronicle Live panel discusses Giants fans stuffing the ballot box
Melky starting. And it's starting do you think it's. If Anthony starting and I don't think Andy should be saying -- them all the time but he ends up getting us started certainly -- Yad I think if you took a poll of anybody in this room than probably anybody including any -- signing nowhere yeah. But you know and in fact I think if I think of Pablo really were to handle this right -- obvious is gonna get asked about it. You know -- stick -- and say you know what we have great fans -- -- -- our front office did something no other front office did they got in there. David -- great player and you know really. This should be the guy who started letting that. Look around the league that guys this is almost at that not every position but a lot of positions and I'm not saying this excuse -- what I'm saying is this is not the only case we could be having this conversation right now. In Atlanta saying does Dan -- deserve to be the second baseman no. We get he had used him most as rough feel for Kolb deserve an average at Larry know we'd be having a -- is Mike Napoli little World Series and Mike Napoli is there to be the catcher hitting to thirty. Answers now so it's not just panda. It's all Curtis Granderson in New York is not one of the top three outfielders in the American League but here's what the problem comes it's when you have. Brandon Crawford in the top three vote. It's when you have Freddy Sanchez who hasn't played since you have won eleven. In the top for a long second baseman and the Giants gone from supporting their guys that kind of making a mockery and sham of the also vote. His thing. The all star voting is a mockery and sham. It's not like it's never been that that's what it is it's just an all star game and it's a good topic for us to talk about but finally it's not as important. As some of the other topics we talked about earlier today. -- I had to add to that I think with the Giants front office that was they found a way to beat the system yeah I mean they did it perfectly within the rules of the system is it right maybe not. But I thought they did pretty well you know suspicious but those numbers we've added. A little -- -- two million both swing and one was quite a swing and voted to -- Twitter get involved or FaceBook or -- but that's part of what baseball wants and this is the heart of Silicon Valley we're gonna be more adapted to vote like that isn't it tilted in our favor it's crazy and but. You know -- that obviously the Bay Area is the Internet savvy place and you saw Sandy Alderson sweet. How -- city of eight million -- out voted by city -- and it. It's a good one that's a good tweak it a few people in the Bay Area more than eight and yeah. I think he's a San Francisco that you -- the city he's been so I know he wants but it's it's a good argument though when you look at.
