All-Star Game

Look at theses stats and tell me if this guy is an All-Star caliber player:

Player A - 116 R / 22 HR / 118 RBI

Not bad huh? Is that player Ichiro? Todd Helton? Some other stud? No - that player was Scott Cooper and before you start scratching your head thinking, "I don't remember Scott Cooper being that good." You are right. Those stats above are his combined numbers from the 1993 and 1994 seasons. Both of those years Cooper was named to the All-Star game.

Alex Rodriguez is having an off year and he still has 13 HR and 52 RBI at the break. Those were season total-type numbers for Scott Cooper. In fact those 13 HR would have equalled a career high for Cooper.

Why do I bring this up? Well here's a list of the Ten Most Laughable All-Stars in Baseball History. The list completely missed Scott Cooper - not once but both times he was named to the All-Star squad.
