Vote for Placido Polanco.
Detroit Tigers second baseman Placido Polanco needs your help. Right now, he is second in the American League All Star voting to Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano.
Polanco is so much more deserving of an All Star start than Cano. Really, there is no comparision.
Quo Vadimus wrote an excellent piece on exactly why Polanco should be this year's starter, but here are the quick numbers splits:
Robinson Cano: Batting Average: .275
Placido Polanco: Batting Average: .345
Robinson Cano: RBI: 29
Placido Polanco: RBI: 32
Robinson Cano: On Base Percentage: .314
Placido Polanco: On Base Percentage: .389
Robinson Cano: Batting Average with runners in scoring position: .194
Placido Polanco: Batting Average with runners in scoring position: .429
Robinson Cano: 6 errors
Placido Polanco: 0 errors
There really is no comparison. Polanco has been so much better.
So, if by the off chance that someone happens to read this, GO VOTE POLANCO for the American League All Star second baseman.
