13.J.D. Drew Red Sox 297,174
14.Curtis Granderson Tigers 279,687
15.Bobby Abreu Angels 265,211

Wtf? Josh Hamilton.

So I have decided that I am going to compile there stats post them here and use a scoring system (Which I found on the internet) to figure out what the real rankings are.
(AVG-Average, OBP-On Base Percentage, H-Hits, R-Runs, HR-Homeruns, XBH-Extra Base Hits, RBI-Runs Batted In, SB- Stolen Bases, A-Defensive Assists)

1. Jason Bay
AVG-.288 OBP-.415 H-51 R-38 HR-15 XBH-29 RBI-49 SB-5 A-3
2. Josh Hamilton
AVG-.240 OBP-.290 H-30 R-20 HR-6 XBH-13 RBI-24 SB-3 A-2
3. Ichiro Suzuki
AVG-.352 OBP-.383 H-69 R-19 HR-5 XBH-15 RBI-16 SB-8 A-2
4. Ken Griffey Jr.
AVG-.208 OBP-.327 H-25 R-15 HR-5 XBH-10 RBI-14 SB-0 A-0
5. Carl Crawford
AVG-.324 OBP-.383 H-69 R-40 HR-3 XBH-17 RBI-25 SB-30 A-3
6. Torii Hunter
AVG-.313 OBP-.396 H-56 R-37 HR-12 XBH-25 RBI-42 SB-10 A-1
7. Nick Markakis
AVG-.298 OBP-.362 H-63 R-38 HR-7 XBH-24 RBI-40 SB-1 A-4
8. Johnny Damon
AVG-.301 OBP-.367 H-58 R-40 HR-10 XBH-24 RBI-31 SB-5 A-3
9. Nelson Cruz
AVG-.296 OBP-.360 H-53 R-29 HR-14 XBH-25 RBI-36 SB-9 A-3
10. Adam Jones
AVG-.344 OBP-.400 H-64 R-41 HR-11 XBH-26 RBI-36 SB-4 A-4
11. Jacoby Ellsbury
AVG-.299 OBP-.335 H-64 R-28 HR-1 XBH-12 RBI-15 SB-21 A-1
12. Grady Sizemore
AVG-.223 OBP-.309 H-46 R-29 HR-9 XBH-21 RBI-31 SB-7 A-0
13. J.D. Drew
AVG-.248 OBP-.359 H-38 R-28 HR-7 XBH-19 RBI-23 SB-0 A-3
14. Curtis Granderson
AVG-.258 OBP-.339 H-51 R-38 HR-13 XBH-19 RBI-30 SB-8 A-2
15. Bobby Abreu
AVG-.295 OBP-.395 H-49 R-21 HR-1 XBH-11 RBI-21 SB-15 A-4

Now to calculate the scores. Scoring Basis, AVG(20), OBP(20),H(1),R(2),HR(3),XBH(2),RBI(2),SB(1),A(10).

So these are the collective points of all the players listed from the best to the worse.

1. Jason Bay 505
2. Adam Jones 495
3. Torii Hunter 462
4. Nick Markakis 461
5. Johnny Damon 446
6. Carl Crawford 442
7. Nelson Cruz 436
8. Curtis Granderson 412
9. Ichiro Suzuki 358
10. Bobby Abreu 353
11. J.D. Drew 351
12. Grady Sizemore 348
13. Jacoby Ellsbury 336
14. Josh Hamilton 291
15. Ken Griffey Jr. 211

Now you see that 2 of the top 4 are the actual bottom 2, and the number 10 is actually statistically number 2. So PLEASE GET OUT THERE AND VOTE! No one (cept for some Yankees and Red Sox fans) want the wrong people to be there because its not fair.
