    Default ASG snub for potential MVP?

    I'm not a huge fan of the Met's or their players, but Wright is certainly taking a run at a potential MVP nomination ... Here's a trivia question though; Has anyone ever won an MVP but not STARTED the ASG?

    Jimmy Rollins wasn't an All-Star the year he won the NL MVP (2007).
    I see the light at the end of the tunnel now
    Someone please tell me it's not a train

    Kirk Gibson won an MVP and was never an all star.

    Not starting wouldn't be that uncommon for an MVP winner. It's been a fan vote since the early 70's (and prior to '56 also) If Jeter can make the team, being an MVP and not making it as a starter wouldn't be out of the question.

    Verlander was an All-Star last year, but didn't play in the game.
    Sometimes good things fall apart, so great things can fall together.

    Bonus fake Keith Jackson appearance: "Whoa, Nellie, we have ourselves a barn-burner here today! Welcome to the 117th dust-up between the Snortin' Swine of Springfield A&M and the Springfield University Nittany Tide. Ho, ho, doctor, break out the hickory switch! Well, hang on to your hoop skirts, folks, because Anton Lubchenko is going to be kicking higher than a mule on payday. Oh, land o'lakes! Take that, ozone layer! (later in the game) Oh, doctor, with SU behind and seconds left, my supply of homespun sayings is lower than a doodlebug in Aunt Tilly's root cellar. So we'll -- Oh, jumpin' crawdaddies! Is that Lubchenko coming back on the field?"
