I hate all this arguing about Strasburg participating or not participating in the All-Star Game. Yes, he's a great pitcher but he hasn't been pitching for long at all. Strasburg will be playing in All-Star Games for years to come unless something unbelievable happens.
How can you justify putting someone whos only started 5 games. Think about it like this, if you put Strasburg in the All-Star Game you're taking a spot from a guy that will maybe be making his only appearence in an All-Star Game. You could even talk to your grandkids about it. "I beat out Stephen Strasburg for the All-Star pitching spot. What a story that would be.
On a slightly more pleasent topic... I'm happy that the Jays got by the Yanks today but I'm wondering how they can get swept by the Indians and then the next day go out and beat the World Series Champions. It makes me mad but I love beating the big power houses. I'm looking forward to the All-Star Game and all the festivities, it should be good TV watching. I would love to see the NL steal one from the AL and stop their streak. Best of luck.
