I don't give a **** so much about offense, but I look at his defensive game to gauge how into a game he is. I don't think he was trying all that hard down low.
I don't want to say 'not trying'. I just think he was a little off. What I found interesting is that the STL media looked as his 'a little off' and said, after Berglund and Flower, that was still good enough to be #3 star. It's not as if we're talking about Pens homers there, and it's not as if they couldn't have voted for say Neal or Elliot. It's just the dichotomy in terms of how people who don't see Geno all the time and people like us look differently at one of his 'meh' games.
