I am very sorry I am saying this. I do not think he should participate in the Home Run Derby.
David Wright can barely hit a home run for his own team. He is hardly hitting at all for this team. You want to vote him into the Derby? Seriously? Not happening!
Right now, the only man I am even thinking of voting into the All-Star game is Luis Castillo. I think he deserves it. He came into this season ready to rumble and has done it.
One thing that drives me nuts about baseball fans is that they vote for their favorite players, not necessarily the guy who deserves to be in the All-Star game.
I am begging you to please not do this with the Mets. I would not mind if not a single Met goes this year. Does having an All-Star really matter? Not really!
The All-Star game has become a popularity contest. This does not mean the player is a great player. I hear All-Star, I think of the best the leagues have to offer.
Almost every member of the Mets team, except Johan Santana, Carlos Beltran and Luis Castillo, do not belong there.
I do not want Francisco Rodriguez to go. I would like to see him rest in the even the Mets do make it to the playoffs. I think the whole team should just rest.
But that’s just my opinion.
