Oh, and hold on, that’s not it though. No other Marlin is going to represent us in Kansas City. Stanton is still considered to be our representative even if he is not able to attend the All Star game. Yep. We will have no one there to show off our new logo. (Because we all love it now, right?)
It is bad enough that Stanton is hurt and will be away for such a long time, but I am so disappointed he is not able to attend the All Star game. For me, the All Star game is a tradition where I look forward to seeing our guys show off their skills. (Unless you’re Dan Uggla. Let’s forget that ever happened. I still love the guy though.) This year, I don’t even feel excited about it. Sure, I may watch a little bit if I have the chance, but it’s not the same without a Marlin.
Let’s hope that Giancarlo has a speedy recovery and that he comes back kicking ass again. In the end, that is all that matters.
