UPDATE at 7:40 p.m.: Nevermind.
C’mon, 8-4 with a 2.69 ERA and the guy can’t get on the All-Star team?? How dumb is the rule that every team must be represented … Cueto is clearly more deserving than Ted Lilly (8-6, 3.32) … better record and ERA obviously and also a better WHIP than Lilly, five fewer HRs surrendered, etc. Hopefully one of the starters chosen can’t go for some reason, in which case our man Cueto had better be first in line to replace that guy.
The only thing that made the announcement of the All-Star squad easier to swallow in a completely schadenfruedic (is that a word?) way is that Dunn got jobbed too :D
Congrats to Coco.
