Willis All-Star Snub!

Postby Tread42 » Sun Jul 06, 2003 8:01 pm

I can't believe Willis didn't get on the All-Star squad. I thought he was a shoe-in with all of his enthusiasm and charisma. It would have been nice to see a young guy full of zest in the game, but I agree with how Baker voted for the replacement.

Thought out there?
Regards,

The fact that he only came up part way through the first half from the minors had something to do with that.

he didn't pitch enough games to warrant a spot on the team. that and the every-team-is-represented rule did him in.

these are all valid arguements, but the man does have a 2.13 ERA. he is a fringe all-star, much better than ortiz IMO.

ya he has a 2.13 era but the man hasn't played nearly as much as the other pitchers so there is still no way that he is a snub

What difference does it make how many games he's started? If it was just a few, that would be different. But the guy is among the league leaders in everything! It's not only a snub, it's downright stupid. Willis is about the hottest commodity in all of baseball right now, and this idiotic exhibition game is all about ratings, anyway.

the number of games means a lot ,, he's had less oppertunities to give up runs and every thing else so that he doesn't lead in those catagories. he is just like a hitter who got injured and wasn't there half the first half , the hitters' number though would be low , but for him as a pitcher their high.

he said he didn't do enough to be on the all-star team. That could of attributed to people picking him.

Whether he should have been there or not, you have to like Willis' reaction at not getting the call...
