Working on a deal to send him to Japan. I get that Rizzo makes him completely useless on an NL team, but I'm pretty surprised this is the best they could do. Not one team takes a chance on him?

Does this make him at least in the running for worst All-Star selection ever?

If you ask me, he already was in the running.

"ha!"

I'm also surprised no other team would at least want him to be a pinch hitter.

Wasn't he named by the players and not by the fans? There have been a couple of bad All Star selections. Garciaparra was named one year after playing something like seven games. There was another player who was a utility guy and just happened to be in attendance to the game when one of the starters got hurt and he was named at the last minute. Plus, Lahair had a pretty good first half.

Yes, but Garciaparra was a borderline great player. Hell, in 2003 it looked like he was well on his way to Cooperstown.

Wasn't it Phil Rodgers who picked him over pk in those stupid crosstown comparisons

Worst All-Star ever has to be Jason Varitek in 2008
