The reason the ACTUAL All-Star teams are missing a lot of players who SHOULD have been there, but aren't, is because of the requirement that all teams must have a representative on the team, which is very important, by the way, in order for that team's fan base to have at least one reason to tune in, and have at least one player to cheer on in the All Star Game. The result is, a lot of players who have been having All Star caliber seasons, not making it, to make room for a team's "lone representative".

I hate to say this, because as a Yankee fan, I dislike the Red Sox, but Kenley Jansen should have made the All Star Team instead of Clay Holmes. There are many All Star snubs that have occurred because of the "lone representative" rule, but Holmes getting in instead of Jansen is not one of those.

Gil, the way he was playing in April and May would definitely have made the team. The way be pitched in June, unfortunately, he likely pitched his way off the team.

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
