I thought that Matt Holliday was supposed to be replacing Soriano. It was announced yesterday.

Yeah you are right. I don't think it is bias as Wright did finish second to Hart in the fan voting over the weekend.

Obviously if you don't agree with the fan voting method of selection, you may not agree with me.

Maybe you're just biased against the Mets...

Wright was deserving, but Burrell more so.

This is becoming so dumb... Let Burrell in

Can you back that up with some stats or should we just take your word for it?

maybe 17 hr's and 70 rbi's before the all-star break isn't considered 'good' anymore

not to mention Wright hasn't had his usual David Wright hitting streak that's usually for 40-45 games where he's hitting everything

I compared the numbers and I barely see a difference... All I see is Lees 4 more HRs than Wright... and his avg which is about 5 points higher.... Not like Wright snubbed Lee... its more like Lee got snubbed by Fukudome and Hart....

So Wright does not deserve to be in it then if you are calling him a homer??

Lee yes got snubbed and if Wright didnt make it he wouldve been snubbed.. same crap

reyes is having 10x's the season tejada is having.

maybe not 10x like he said but he is def. having a better season than Tejada

Burrell is having a better season than both of them. OBP over .400, better SLG%, more HRs, and a solid average against both righties and lefties.

Not to mention he's carried this Phillies team for most of the half, with Howard sucking balls when nobody's on base, and Utley suffering a little slump as of late.

Lee and Burrell both should have been in over Wright, but since they are outfielders they didn't get put in. Wrights in over Lee because they dont want another outfielder. But even though I think Lee and Burrell had a slight edge, Wright is still very deserving and he is having a fine year

Lee - .293/.345/.548/133 OPS+
Wright - .288/.386/.511/139 OPS+

At worst, Wright is even with Lee

Both Burrell and Jason Bay deserved to be in the ASG over Lee.

Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

Jose Reyes: .300 ba | 9 hr's | 40 rbi's | 22 2b's | 10 3b's | 32 sb's | 40 bb's | .363 obp | .480 slugg | .844 ops

Miguel Tejada: .277 ba | 10 hr's | 44 rbi's | 21 2b's | 2 3b's | 7 sb's | 19 bb's | .319 obp | .430 slugg | .749 ops

Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

Reyes - .300/.364/.480, 41 XBH's, 32 SB's to 10 CS (76%), 125 OPS+
Tejada - .277/.319/.430, 33 XBH's 7 SB's to 3 CS (70%), 97 OPS+ (in other words, below average park adjusted OPS)

Clearly you're on it if you don't think he's having a better year

For all the Lee and Burrell fans, blame the Cubs fans, not us Mets fans

To vote ****dome in is not a smart vote Chi-town

Now Lee is the biggest snub, but Reyes for sure has been snubbed if sb's and runs count for sumthing in baseball

He said 10 times better as if Tejada is having a terrible year, or sucks. I'm not saying Reyes hasn't been better, just saying Tejada has been good too.

All you do is bash Burrell, and the Phillies in general.

I see jealousy tbh.

all of you guys are *****ing way too much. many players were more deserving than others, but the fact of the matter is people didnt vote that way. Wright has been the best player in the past 2-3 weeks out of the few people left to pick and the most deserving.
