So that's why he should be an all star? Because the ball was foul?
Did he pitch well otherwise? No. 9 hits 2 BB in 6.2 innings.
So the ball was foul, it was crushed. He didn't pitch well otherwise, that's why he's not an all-star.
It seems like you are using today's game as some kind of proof that he shouldn't be an all-star (i agree he shouldn't be an all-star, but your logic is flawed).
First, you don't mention the 6Ks. Way to throw up a strawman.
Second, it shouldn't be 6ER because of a obviously botched call.
Third, so if someone crushes a foul ball, that makes the pitcher bad? That's pretty much what you are saying.
Fourth, do you see the park that he has to pitch in? It's a friggin' launching pad.
Fifth, don't ever make cases on one outing. It seems thats what you are doing here. Everyone bashed Santana early in the year and what happened? Every praised Zito before the season and what happened? 9 hits in 6.2 isn't that bad considering one hit was false.
