Brown Is Hot, But Not on Ballot

Domonic BrownDomonic Brown is one of the hottest hitters on the planet, but he is nowhere to be found among the leaders in votes for the National League All-Star team.

MLB just announced the top five players at every position, including the top 15 outfielders.

Brown is not among the top 15. I guess that isn’t a surprise. While Brown is hitting .329 with six doubles, two triples, 15 home runs, 36 RBIs and a 1.053 OPS since April 23, he only truly has gotten everybody’s attention in the last 10 games. He is hitting .447 (17-for-38) with one double, one triple, nine home runs, 17 RBIs and a 1.712 OPS in that stretch. Combine that late surge with lower attendance at Citizens Bank Park and Phillies fans not exactly excited about their team — thus they are not stuffing the ballot box like they have in the past — and Brown seems destined to the make the team as a reserve.

Chase Utley is the only Phillies player to be listed among the leaders, but he is a distant third among second basemen.

He was the only Phil I voted for. I don’t think anyone else deserves to go except Chase and he hasn’t played enough to deserve to go. I almost always vote for all Phils, but I have been so ticked off at these lame batters that I only voted for Dom. Hopefully, He’ll be a mangaer’s pick and get in. He deserves it.

Dom was the only Phillie I voted for. None of the others except maybe Chase should even get consideration.

Voting is easier than ever. Make your picks, then just keep typing in the validation key and click on “submit your vote.” Everybody who reads Todd’s blog should be good for 35 votes (ten extra votes if you sign up with MLB.com
