Now I ussualy don't post much, but it's time for a rant, so bare with me for a second. I can MAYBE understand Veritek heading to the All Star Game instead of Big Frank, but how in the hell does Jason Giambi replace Mike Sweeney? Oh wait, because he's wearing the Yankee pinstripes, and the East Coast horse****!! Thomas finishes second among voters, and with his stats, should be the logical choice, but no, because he's a White Sox, he doesn't deserve to get in! Of course you know the MLB's thinking, without 500 Yankees in the ASG, it's no fun for the fans! I hope everyone that goes brings "WE WANT FRANK" signs to the ballpark. How many of you are not going to watch the all star game, because of this crap??

Everett wasn't even asked to be in the HR derby. No White Sox rep in the derby, No Barry Bonds in the derby, and not even Sosa (to boo of course) ... This sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Excuse me? Where have you been? Could you give me your reasons for saying that Frank doesn't deserve to go?

I agree completely!

Mike Scioscia is a PUTZ. Leaving Frank out with the game on his home turf while putting up some dang good numbers. That takes balls. Or massive stupidity. Take your pick.

Of course, I'm not in the greatest mood right now...watching Danny Wright always makes me queasy. (Does he ever throw two consecutive strikes? Just wondering...) :angry:

The All-Star Game is just a meaningless exhibition game... No use getting all upset about it when we've just lost 5 of 6 to Tampa Bay and Detroit...

Now get mad. :angry:

be glad too--Frank has come on of late but why was Magglio taken when Ramirez went down---if he had have gotten off his ass in April and May I would say yes it was a snub----but hes hitting what---.275 with 48 RBI????

Frank should be there no question, if only to boost his bat come the second half...

I loved the game it was worth every penny. Frank did not belong there.
