Business has taken me away from home for a couple of days, and away from TV and radio. Didn't see a lick of last night's game, which sounds like a good thing.
All-Star voting ends Thursday, I think. Looks like our main man Zimmerman isn't going to catch up and win the starting nod at third base. My guess is he'll make the team anyway. He remains the National with the most buzz.
The question - is that the right call?
I'm OK with it, though he's tailed off some. I think his 30-game hit streak, which was one of the stories of the first half (along with the Nats incredibly poor performance overall), earned him the spot by itself.
But what about Adam Dunn? What about Cristian Guzman? No pitchers deserve consideration. A small case can be made for Nick Johnson.
Or is this open and shut? Zimmerman, end of discussion?
