Blame yourselves for the David Wright thing, Met fans. If you wanted to see your guy play during the only three innings of the All-Star Game that people actually watch, you should have voted more often.
For Sunday's 8-3 loss to the Dodgers, though, go right ahead and get agitated with the Mets, who ran themselves out of a first-inning rally against Clayton Kershaw, committed three crucial errors, and fumbled their attempt to crush a lost team. A three-of-four road series win leaves a pleasant taste, but this final course was vile.
As for Wright, the San Francisco fans simply outworked their New York counterparts, and vaulted an inferior player, Pablo Sandoval, over Wright - despite trailing the Mets' third baseman by approximately 465,000 votes last week.
Sandoval ended up winning by 5,743,542 votes to Wright's 4,133,380, and will start for the National League on July 10.
Wright was chosen as a reserve player, and as expected, R.A. Dickey was named to Tony LaRussa's pitching staff. The 37-year-old, making his first All-Star appearance, will wait another week to learn if he will start the game.
