Long time reader but first time poster. After the Cliff Lee signing this week and seeing all the hyperbole about "the best pitching staff ever" I decided I almost dislike the Phillies as much as the Dodgers. What gave me a little peace of mind was the realization that Bruce Bochy is going to be able to go all Charlie Manuel on the NL All Star roster this year.
We may finally get vindication for this: http://blogs.mercurynews.com/extrabaggs/2009/07/10/all-star-snubbed-again-sandoval-passed-over-for-yet-another-phillies-outfielder/
I could see Bochy selecting Andres Torres, or another one of our unheralded favorites to the team next year, and we can collectively laugh as the national media gives some previously unheard of Giant the Omar Infante treatment.
Comment Starter: Which otherwise undeserving Giant will be on the All Star roster next year at the expense of a deserving Philly or Doger, to all of our collective amusement?
