  1. Let’s be honest – there isn’t a player on Potomac who deserves to be an all star. Lehman has been the only consistent player, but you can’t close when your team never wins. I’m not sure that Hood was the most deserving of the honor. But someone had to go so that the team is represented.

  2. If he’s hitting .826OPS at his age and the speed and defense are improving why isn’t he worthy? You folks have seen him closer that I have. I just have the stats, though. Seems to me, he’s the one who is trending upward of those outfielders. The disappointment is that Perez hasn’t proven worthy yet. What do you season ticket holders think his deal is?
