Re: Jack Comes Through (KGJ, Casey, Graves, Larkin) All Stars
That's a nice tip of the cap to Mr. Larkin.
Other comments (Please note that McKeon does not have all say in the matter of reserves so this is not directed at him):
I love Carlos Beltran's game, but in what universe does he belong on the NL All-Star team after being in the NL for one week?
Moises Alou instead of Adam Dunn as an OF reserve is a joke, especially since they play the same stinkin' position. In fact, Moises Alou from the Cubs instead of Aramis Ramirez from the Cubs is also a farce considering that there's only one 3B reserve. I'm assuming that Casey won't be able to make the game and hope that we...somehow...see both Dunn and Ramirez suit up. They've earned it this year even more than Jack Wilson has, and certainly far more than Alou has. Alou being on the team is my "stinker" pick of the year.
Livan Hernandez might be the best "mandatory" single selection for a very bad team that I've seen in quite a while.
Nice pitching staff. Graves...eh. But overall a much better job than the AL version.
It ain't difficult to see that the Shortstop strength lies in the American League. The best SS in the game got voted on at 3B (A-Rod), Jeter's manning SS, and Tejada, Carlos Guillen, and Michael Young are having significantly better seasons than pretty much anyone running to the SS position in the NL. Michael Young is the best player you've never heard of.
