Ryan Howard rounding second after hitting his major-league-leading 28th home run last night, which evidently is not good enough to be on the All-Star team.
And dumb as rocks to boot.
All-Star SnubsGreat call, assface. You just crapped on Burrell’s heart.
Colorado's Clint Hurdle, the National League manager in this year's All-Star Game, yesterday added Mets third baseman David Wright (.288, 17 home runs, 70 RBIs) to the team to replace injured outfielder Alfonso Soriano. Hurdle bypassed the Phillies' Pat Burrell (.279, 22, 54) and Ryan Howard (.234, 28, 84), among others.
Meanwhile, both Conlin and Zolecki speak the the good word about Mr. Ryan Howard.
Also, note that RyHo has four home runs in his last three games and is batting .357 (20-for-56) during his current 14-game hitting streak, with 9 home runs during that span.
