Congratulations, Freddy Sanchez!

>> Sunday

You win the 2007 Award for Least Deserving Guy to Make the All-Star Team Who Only Made it in Because His Sorry-Ass Team Needed a Representative and No Other Combination of Adequacy and Fielding Position Would Fit on the Roster!

Thanks to everyone's favorite little-league style rule that mandates at least one rep per team, you win this year's ALDGMASTWOMBHSATNRNOCAFPWFR, and us fans get treated to your slap-hitting style and .707 OPS in sports' best exhibition showcase.

Keep on truckin', little guy!

P.S.: Someone needs to tell Tony LaRussa / the voting players that closers are not as good as regular pitchers, and that's why they're closers. Yeah, we all love to see them do their one-inning thing, and the ASG sort of lends itself to that, with the frequent pitching changes and all. But come on; six of the twelve NL pitchers being closers? That's lame. Maybe this is LaRussa basking in his own legacy as the guy who sort of invented / popularized the modern closer, and if that were the case, he's a jerk. And he's a jerk anyway.

As a follow up to that, how much more sense would it have made to use either Fuentes's or Valverde's spot on Ian Snell or Tom Gorzellany so that Sanchez could be left off? And then use the other guy's spot on Chris Young who's tearing shit up but was bafflingly left off?

Yeah, I know... It's a trivial topic, but I always feel passionately for the guys who get hosed. I know I'd be pissed.

Congrats to Freddy Sanchez, you're an All-Star despite having a 90 OPS+. Boy that .305 batting average with no walks or power has really helped the Pirates to their 35-45 record.
