Three Chicagoans Take Part In All Star Game Without Much Success

Just getting to the MLB All Star Game is a big accomplishment. That's what people remember, that you played in the big game, not how you did. That's what I imagine the three Chicagoans who were in the All Star Game last night are telling themselves today. Carlos Quentin, Paul Konerko and Starlin Castro combined to go hitless in five combined at bats. Some highlights.

↵

Paul Konerko: He saw 13 pitches in his one at bat, which is way too many for an All Star Game. The fans definitely aren't there to see plate discipline.

↵

Carlos Quentin: Recorded absolutely 0 statistical impact on this game. No hits, no assists, no errors, no nothing. Derek Jeter, without attending, was a bigger presence in this game.

↵

Starlin Castro: Came into the game as a pinch runner and immediately stole two bases. That was the good. He then went 0-1 from the plate and registered an error on a fairly routine play at shortstop.

It's an honor to be there, but I'd like to see a little bit more of these guys.
