It is official. David Wright was named to the NL All-Star team to replace the injured Alfonso Soriano. Nice. And, deserving.
Soriano is unable to play because of a bruised left hand. Wright lost out to Atlantaâ€™s Chipper Jones in the fan balloting, and was beaten out by Milwaukeeâ€™s Corey Hart Thursday in the on-line balloting.
“I don’t want the three days off,” Wright said Thursday. “I am sure that guys in here are looking forward to getting some time off to spend with the family, hang out, but when you get this close to being an All-Star and getting a chance to participate in New York, you want it.â€™â€™
