    Avi an All Star

    Post by rmapasad on Wed Jul 05, 2017 1:39 pm

    Avi Garcia was just named to the All Star team.  

    Hooray for Avi !!!   It's because of the requirement that each team have one representative to the All Star game, and Avi has been the best player on the Sox team.  

    Avi is the 5th in RF WAR in the American League so far (behind Judge, Betts, Springer and Souza).  Souza didn't make it.  Obviously Avi kinda backed into this but so did several other guys like Justin Smoak, Yonder Alonzo, and and Nelson Cruz. They too were borderline All Stars but like Avi they were their teams' best player and thus sole AS representative.

    This "each team has to have one representative" makes All Star game more of a joke than it already is. It insures a half dozen marginal guys get in and better guys get knocked out as a result.  Selig's idea to make the game "count" by giving the winning league home field in the World Series is a joke also.  90% of the All Star players won't be in the World Series and could give a shit which league has home field advantage.

    The All Star game is a colossal waste of time.

    Watch it for about 30 minutes every four or five years.

    I would have thought streaming it live on your HP 12C would be an annual event for you
