The Mets host the All-Star Game on July 16 at Citi Field. Wright surely will represent the Mets, even if he’s not the starter at third base. He already has been named captain for the Home Run Derby and is featured in advertisements leading up to the game.
A dating website? That’s how pathetic the Mets are for attention. If you’re looking for a date, that’s understandable. But to get votes for an All Star Game? They couldn’t just do something fun like when the Yankees did “Send Swish”, to get Nick Swisher elected, which worked by the way. He got elected to the All Star Team. And why is it a website for older women to meet younger men? Older women are not going to log on to the MLB website and fill out an All Star ballot. You wanna know how to win the hearts of older women? George Clooney. I’m telling you man, when he backed Barack Obama during the election, he alone is the reason why women voted more for Obama.
Anyway it doesn’t matter. The new rules say that at least one player from each team has to make the All Star Team. Matt Harvey is making the team, but being that Wright is for some reason the captain of the NL for the Home Run Derby, and because it’s at Shitty Field this year, Selig will make sure Wright’s on the All Star lineup.
It’s bad enough the game is gonna be at Shitty Field. It’s literally going to be the quietest, least-attended All Star Game in my lifetime. And it’s going to be hot and fucking humid too. And the Home Run Derby is going to be the most boring one in recent memory given that David Wright is the captain and it’s going to be played in Shitty Field. I gave up watching the Derby a while ago anyway, but this year even the All Star Game will be too boring for me. Prepare to not watch baseball during the week of July 16th.
