The Jesus Makes Triple-A All-Star Team
Congrats to Eduardo Nunez and J-Alba for their Triple-A All-Star selections. As the Triple-A leaders in hits and saves respectively, they are more than deserving of the spots. Albs should probably be up in the Majors again right now with the way most of the Yankee 'pen is pitching, and it's probably only a matter of time before he gets another shot at the big time with his new 4-seam/curveball combo.
But the real news is the inclusion of The Almighty Jesus on the team. It hasn't exactly been a good year for Jesus, who has slumped at the plate for most of the season. But in the last week he has shown signs of breaking out and so naturally the voters made the wise choice to pick him as a reserve, lest they risk being struck down dead where they stand for failure to recognize the greatness of The Almighty.
It just goes to show how good this kid really is and how good he's going to be. He's played like poo for almost the entire year and he's still so highly regarded (and feared by the mere mortals that he takes pity upon) that he gets picked to the All-Star game. Once again, nobody fucks with The Jesus!!
