Ruiz, Hamels and Papelbon – All-Stars!

2 Jul

Phillies Cole HamelsJonathan Papelbon and Carlos Ruiz will suit up for the National League in this year’s All-Star Game, to be played at Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday, July 10. Carlos Ruiz, elected as a reserve at catcher, is a first-time All-Star and is currently leading the NL in batting average (.358). Hamels (10-4, 3.08 ERA) is going to his third All-Star Game and Papelbon (18 saves) his fifth.

I feel it’s a travesty that our fans couldn’t get Chooch into the game as the starter.  If we had spent a little less time complaining and instead of voting, Chooch would have been behind the dish to start the game.

I’m just glad he’s going, as he really deserved it.

Keep up with me on Facebook, and Twitter, and soon my App will be available in the iTunes store.
