Its a retraction statement.
He was dead wrong and everyone has said something about it. Proved him wrong. Including Joey by going 3-4, 2HR, a double and a walk. He was wrong and is trying to ride the bandwagon now by claiming he was the one who made him by saying he shouldn't have been. AFTER he was already off. Now if Cowturd had a sac, he would have said all this BEFORE voting.
Brodeur is right. Read FJM about him. I dont always agree with FJM but the got it right about Cowturd.
"If your kid asks why Strasburg was omitted but someone named Evan Meek made it, how do you explain? Meek, also a relief pitcher, is the lone representative of the pathetic Pittsburgh Pirates. He has had seven save opportunities this season and converted exactly one, making it curious how he has a 0.98 earned run average. Whatever the reason, no one wants to: (1) see Evan Meek in the All-Star Game, maybe not even his friends and family; or (2) see Evan Meek try to retire American League batters when Strasburg and his drop-dead array of stuff are at home."
Let's not forget to add that his numbers are better than most of the relievers on the NL pitching staff. Let's also fail to realize his ERA is a .96 and has only had 6 save chances. Plus, he's only allowed 5 ERs all season. Nobody would be bitching if he played on the Red Sox or Yankees. I understand that he's not Strasburg and everyone is on his nuts, and rightfully so, but I am not going to give a spot on an All Star team to a guy who had 5 starts this season. Meek has had a great first half of the season, so he deserves it. I think bashing Meek is unwarented because he's been lights out this year. Look at the numbers, not the team. Just bad journalism all around IMO. I would understand if it was about Votto being left off, but Meek? Really?
I understand that he's the Pirate lone All Star and people will bash the decision, but it's not his fault. I bet if Cutch made the team, he'd say the same thing about Cutch that kept Votto off the team. What a ******* douchebag.
Omar Infante (and his .700 OPS) on another hand...
It's not that they think he's the worst selection. Well, maybe. I think they're just mad that their summer jerk off fest isn't in the game. Why should he? I know I'd take Strasburg over Meek, but he had five starts. They should be mad that Matt Capps made it over Strasburg. After that nice April, Capps has fallen HARD. Just stupid.
