Only one Met in the All Star classic. Ironic, huh? I am well aware that the voting closed awhile back, but just as the Mets gain the momentum, chaps like Jose Reyes don't make the team. And, for the record, it was like pulling teeth to get David Wright there.
As a young'un, I really used to love the summer classic. Where else could you see the best in one stadium. But, as time went on, the feeling got a bit diluted with the over-hyped and over-played interleague games. But, it was fun to watch Josh Hamilton sail a bunch over the fences.
Condolences to the family of Bobby Murcer. A class act all around.
Last night, I was at the Mets-Rockies game. Pelfrey was electric.
Back tomorrow. Writing lightly, but posting nonetheless.
