34th man candidates revealed

Like Bruce Bochy said, “I could go to every team and there’s a guy who didn’t make it and has the numbers to be there. You don’t want to snub anybody.”
The Padres have a very underrated reliever that gets ZERO attention because he is not a closer but an eighth inning specialist. His numbers are better than most closers. That guy is Mike Adams.
Stats for 2011:
Games 39  IP 39.1  ERA 1.14   Whip 0.66  K's  41  Opponents BA  .152
Career Seven Years
Games 261  IP 277  ERA 2.14   Whip 1.01  K's  41  Opponents BA  .196

Paul Konerko should win the vote
Victor Martinez (DET) will end up the biggest snub

MOOOORRRRRSE!!!!  This guy has been the hottest hitter in baseball for about 6 weeks now, playing for one of the surprise teams of the year.  Give this mammoth man his due, otherwise he might find you and pound you into submission.

PAULEY! Konerko should have hands down made the team but ill be fine with a fan vote in. But i'm gonna have to agree with how the freak did Mcutchen not even make the Final Vote in? come on! really? whats going on. Im excited for the Pirates and i hope he continues to do well because he deserves it. Give the kid some recognition.

Konerko definitely needs to be on the team, I wouldn't be surprised if he makes it on as an injury replacement just like last year.  He should get the 'sentimental' vote like Jeter as a 4 time all star in the last few seasons of his career at age 35.  On top of that he is having one of the best seasons of his career at such an old age.  Hitting .320 with 21 HR, 61 RBIs and a .950 OPS. Number 5 in average, number 4 in Homers, and 3 in RBIs.

Todd Helton deserves it WAY more. A better avg, more RBI's, and the best fielding % among all 1B in the NL.
