Power Rankings - All Star Snub Edition
.855 OPS at 3B would normally make him an All-Star.
With pitching the name of the game in Wichita, I'm sure
felt left out.
Albuquerque Atomic Ratz
Hard to believe
has only made one All-Star team. I bet he thought this would be his second.
Slightly off last year's pace, but
not making it means it's a tough year for catchers.
A double-rarity; not only does perennial
not make it, but the entire Iowa staff gets shut out.
Monterrey Minute Men
was banking on joining his five Minute Men brothers.
There will be plenty of future All-Star appearances for
. This season was a near-miss.
Santa Fe Brooks
The squeeze at 1B in the AL kept
from making his 4th All-Star team.
Scranton Rail Raiders
The hitters get all the glory in Scranton, but
would have felt right at home at the midsummer classic.
Los Angeles Colemans
is finally having the season he's capable of, but not quite enough to earn an All-Star nod.
Anaheim Arte Morenos
is having his best season since his All-Star season 32, but came up short.
should be making his second appearance, but has been a victim of run support.
hadn't split the season between two teams, his 90 RBI surely would have landed him a spot on the All-Star squad.
Fargo Marlboro Men
You know 2B is stacked when
.833 OPS can't make the cut.
being a victim of the numbers game, but
absence is a real head scratcher.
's record was maybe just a game better, he assuredly would have been an All-Star.
Augusta Polar Bears
had pitched a few more innings, he would have gotten a spot.
is certainly not used to sitting home during the break.
I'm sure the Bulls were packing
's bags for the trip.
Tough to have
sitting at home with his 37 HR's and 89 RBI.
If he had received some decent run support,
and his 1.03 WHIP would be making the trip.
Hippopotamus Dance Party
a victim of the 1B squeeze.
Syracuse Barking Spiders
is certainly a future All-Star, many times over.
San Antonio Wildcats
looked like he was on track to make it, but fell just a bit short.
Kansas City Blues
Pedro "Prince" Ontiveros
has All-Star qualifications, but it's hard to argue against the guys who made it in RF.
Tampa Bay Don Cesars
was hoping to make his fifth All-Star team, but he tailed off after a hot start.
San Francisco Lockdown
It would have been nice to see veteran journeyman
make his first All-Star team for the job he's done this season.
Too bad the Tornadoes couldn't score more runs for
, or else he'd be an All-Star.
Same story for
Washington DC Senators
, who could have added the fifth berth to his resume.
has quietly put together a few very good seasons, including an All-Star worthy campaign so far this season.
Arizona Wild Kittys
had a 22 game hitting streak earlier this season, and is having an overall All-Star caliber year.
