For the second straight summer the Mets will have a high profile on the National League All-Star team. David Wright, Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran were voted in by the fans, and Billy Wagner was named by NL manager Tony La Russa to play in next TuesdayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s game at San Francisco.
The Mets sent six players last year to Pittsburgh.
“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not something you expect growing up as a child,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ Wright said. “But it is a tremendous honor playing with the gameÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s greatest. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s something you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t take for granted.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
It is the second straight appointment for Wright and Reyes; the third straight for Beltran and fourth overall; and fifth appearance for Wagner.
