If anything, Fuentes should be off the team and replaced by Ramirez.
Almost 1/3 of the leagues closers are in the all-star game. That's ridiculous. Papelbon and Wagner don't deserve to be there. They may have deserving numbers but that's not good enough this year.
True, Paplebon's been terrible What is it about him that doesn't deserve to be an All-Star? Is it the 1.50 ERA, the 42K in 30 IP, or the 0.87 WHIP?
No mention of Youk getting snubbed?
A non-Red Sox? How about Erik Bedard? Only leads the league in K's...
