I've come across several articles today regarding Brennan Boesch not being selected to the American League team for the All-Star Game next Tuesday.
In today's first post I discussed my disappointment in Brennan not being at least on the MLB Final Vote, and that seems to be the one prevailing theme.
On today's broadcast of the Tigers 12-9 win over the Baltimore Orioles, both play by play man Mario Impemba, and color man Rod Allen were both astonished that Brennan wasn't on the Final Vote.
Here's the links I've found so far on the snub issue, starting with this one by Jason Stark, whom I consider one of the best baseball writers in the business, from espn.com...Jason Stark on MLB All-Star snubs
Both Brennan and Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander took not making the team like professionals in this post by Michael Rosenberg of the Detroit Free Press...Boesch, Verlander talk about not making the All-Star Game
There's also this piece by Thomas Franz of the Bleacher report...Tigers All-Stars 2010,
I hope that Brennan, who's from the L.A. area, gets there somehow, maybe in the HR Derby. I voted 25 times for Brennan as a write-in for the event.
One more reminder to vote for Brennan as the MLB Clutch Performer for June, here's the link...Vote for Brennan
