View Full Version : Boston writer questions Ozzie's picks

There is a lot of crying in Boston that Curt Schilling was not picked by Ozzie but even I had to laugh at this comment by a Boston writer today. :rolleyes:

Schilling wasn’t the only deserving starter snubbed. New York Yankee Mike Mussina and Detroit’s Justin Verlander lost out to a pair of questionable selections from Guillen’s White Sox: starter Mark Buerhle (who surrendered 10 runs yesterday to the Cubs) and closer Bobby Jenks (2-1, 2.41, 25 saves).

All I have to say is this: what goes around comes around. For years, deserving Sox players (Frank Thomas, etc.) were left at home as Yankees and Red Sox players were selected to the team even if they didn't deserve to go. Now that the shoe's on the other foot, Schilling and the rest of his ilk shouldn't be complaining.

What I like about all of this is that Ozzie doesn't give a rats ass about what these people think. Considering how many "deserving" Red Sox have been voted in the last few years by the fans I don't know why this guy is bitching. Furthermore, Buehrle was selected BEFORE he gave up the 11 runs yesterday, he was 9-4 with a 3.22ERA at the time of his selection. And why would we want to put the AL saves leader on the AS team?:rolleyes:

Seriously, Frank only has something like 5 ASG selections, that is an absolute joke.

Agreed. As solid of a player Varitek is, the two catchers should be Mauer and Ivan Rodriguez. As much as Leyland and Gardy are getting credit (and deservedly so) for their teams' success so far, I think you need to give their catchers some love too since they are the ones calling the whole thing.

Wow your article sucks. Typical New Englander for getting about the rest of the country. Buerhle was the only questionable choice. Being a White Sox fan me and several others know there are other more deservings. Fransico Lariano should be on the all star team in Buerhle's place if anything. Also, how can you leave out the fact that Troy Glaus made the team yet the only thing he has done is hit home runs. Glaus has terrible defense, A terrible average of .248 but he hits 22 home runs so he should be on in front of Crede who is hitting .303 with 16 hrs and is a gold glove calliber third basemen.

You fail to mention what a tradgedy it would have been for Varitek to make the allstar team instead of Pudge Rodriguez or Joe Mauer! For whatever reason you New Englanders seem to feel that because a guy is on the Red Sox or Yankees the players automatically deserve all star bids. Come on.

How does David Ortiz get on the allstar ballot also? He is a DH and has played 5 games at 1st all year. Thome is a DH who has played a couple at first but he is no where to be found, and he is just as deserving as David is.

There is to much east coast mainly new england area biased for me. Take a look outside you world and discover the midwest, and west coast. I garuntee you the world is round, and once you get passed Niagara Falls you will not fall off of earth.

Maybe Ozzie should take Schilling, pitch him 2 innings and screw the rest of Schilling's season in the process. Oh, and how's this for a scenario. It's the 3rd inning, AL is up by a run, but the bases are packed for the NL with 2 out. There's an easy popup to Ortiz, but BECAUSE HE'S A DH AND THE FANS VOTED HIM TO PLAY FIRST, he drops the ball, and 2 runs score. NL takes the lead, score remains the same, NL wins the game. Then, let's say the White Sox don't make the Series (which, of course, I hope doesn't happen). The NL has home field because the brilliant Red Sox fans voted Ortiz in at first base. The Red Sox win all 3 games at home but can't find a way to win on the road and lose the series in 7 games.

What is his problem with Jenks? He's been one of the best closers this year. He's not getting a lot of pub for it like Papelbon is, though. Maybe he should take a look: Jenks has blown ONE save this year. That's right, ONE.

Ozzie's reasons for not picking Schilling are justified.
Doesn't Schilling start on Sunday? I believe Ozzie said he talked to the managers...maybe there's a reason he's not in the game. If he starts on Sunday, he's not going to be able to pitch very much on Tuesday, and Ozzie wants to win.
Buehrle has been Ozzie's ace. It's called respect, and I'm sure Francona would have done the same thing.Ozzie only picked three guys: Konerko, Jenks, and Buehrle, and every one of them is justified, so this guy can cry all he wants.

Sucks for them. Ozzie said he would take White Sox, and he did ... don't act surprised!

Who

And since I'm pretty sure the space between and including Boston and

Here's my email to this crybaby:

Just because the Red Sox didn't get their usual seven or eight guys in is no reason to start crying. For several years, all the White Sox had was Frank Thomas and later Magglio Ordonez, but they barely got a whiff of the All-Star Game because of all the Red Sox and Yankees who were placed on the team at the behest of the Eastern Seaboard Propaganda Network. You just can't bear the thought that our Sox swept your Sox in the ALDS en route to their first World Series championship in 88 years. To the victor goes the spoils.

What are you being an apologist for? Ozzie doesn't owe the east coast a damn thing. I could put that same argument to Rogers who has similar numbers to Buehrle. Liriano should have gone but as long as every team gets a rep(redman) people get left out. I was really suprised Ozzie was able to get 6 of our guys there but I couldn't be glader he did.

My email to this dude:

Please.

I understand the skewed perspective a writer working on or near the east coast could develop. I mean you folks do have a major national sports network that consistantly pretends that everybody across the country gives a crap about that pair of teams from the A.L. East. I get that, after hearing the propaganda on a daily basis, a person living in one of those cities might begin to lose his/her understanding of what reality is. Much like a celebrity not knowing simple things like the cost of a loaf of bread.

That said, your article regarding the Red Sox "snubs" was just a little bit silly. Perhaps if I thought you had never watched an all-star game in your life, I could understand your points. I just seriously doubt that is the case. For the past umpteen years the manager has always selected players with his own guys taking a slight advantage. (much more than that with Torre at the helm) Yes, Curt "Blowhard" Schilling has slightly better numbers than Mark Buehrle, but not significantly. Certainly not to the extent that Buehrle's own manager would pass him over. And you have no grounds to question Jenks. He has the most saves in the American league, with only one save blown. Done and done. And Kevin Youkilis? Are you insane? Over who, Konerko or Thome? Look at the numbers. They aren't close. And just because people know Jason Varitek's name, that certainly doesn't make him a viable all-star in comparison to a vastly superior Ivan Rodriguez and a Joe Mauer who is nearly hitting .400.

Please.

definitely no Varitek.

This is a throw away column written by a writer in every city, every year the day after the ASG selections come out. It is basically a holiday for the columnist as all he must do is change names around from year to year. I would spend about as much time worrying about this piece as the writer did creating it.

Morrissey should do a follow up piece detailing the columns that have come out the day after ASG selections since the game began.

Ultimately this is exactly what MLB wants.

Another interesting reason of why Mussina and Schilling were "snubbed" from Scott Reifert's blog (http://whitesoxpride.mlblogs.com/inside_the_white_sox/):

Starting pitching was an concern. Three of the five starters chosen by the players are scheduled to pitch Sunday, which limits them to at most one inning in the ASG. So in Buehrle, Zito and Redman, Ozzie was adding pitchers who could give him innings should the game go to extras.

Pitchers like Mike Mussina and Curt Schilling are having great years but are scheduled to throw Sunday. Adding them to the team would not solve the innings issue.

Based purely on ability and performance, yeah I think Schilling should be going. But how about Bosox fans equally noting how their voting "stacked" the starting roster with seaboard scrubs?
