Five Red Sox are going to the All-Star Game: David Ortiz, Manny, Mike Lowell, Beckett, and Papelbon. Kevin Youkilis is not included. What a bummer. That’s not a shot at Ortiz, who I love to bits. Youk is just having such a great year. Ah, he’s an All-Star in the eyes of Red Sox Nation. That’s all that matters.
What is surprising about the vote, A-Rod was the top vote-getter. Really? He’s such a douche! He even beat out Derek Jeter. Maybe folks thought they were voting for “A-Hole of the Year.”
