Here's the latest: Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz has been added to the American League All-Star team as an injury replacement for Torii Hunter. This means Chone Figgins is left out in the cold and the only Angel on the All-Star team is Fuentes. What crap. Does this mean that Joe Maddon is officially dead to us? Or is the All-Star Game so insignificant in the larger scheme of the baseball season that we should just appreciate that Figgy gets a nice rest so he can mow down the Rays when they next head into town?
Personally, the ASG just makes me pissed off because it is so heavily biased against the Angels even in years when individual Angels are so absolutely deserving. But that's me. Thoughts?
