The All-Star teams were announced today. I have one major gripe:
Chris Young is not an All-Star.
Young is 8-3 so far this year in 16 starts. Against the best team in the AL, Boston, he allowed one hit over 7 innings and struck out 11. Chris is second in the league in WHIP, first in fewest hits allowed per 9 innings, 4th in strikeouts per 9 innings, and third in ERA. His stats are as good or better than those of Brad Penny, Jake Peavy, Ben Sheets, and Cole Hamels, all of whom are All-Stars.
I implore both my readers - go to mlb.com and vote for Chris. Vote early and often.
Fans of baseball thank you.
