An All-Star Is An All-Star No Matter The Spot On The Depth Chart

Know how many “all stars” passed on playing in this game for the Pirates to get three in there?

For the first time since the Pirates’ early-1990s heyday, the National League will have three Pittsburgh players on its roster in the Major League Baseball All-Star Game.

Pitcher Joel Hanrahan is perfect in 26 save opportunities this year, and he broke the Pirates’ record for consecutive save opportunities converted.

Outfielder Andrew McCutchen has a .291 batting average, .390 on-base percentage and .505 slugging percentage, with 14 home runs and 54 RBI. He has also stolen 15 bases.

McCutchen was added to the NL All-Star roster as an injury replacement for Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, who was voted as a starter by fans.

Pitcher Kevin Correia is 11-7 with a .270 ERA and one complete game. He was chosen as a replacement for Philadelphia’s Cole Hamels, who became ineligible when he pitched for the Phillies on Sunday.

The last time Pittsburgh had three All-Stars was 1990, when outfielders Barry Bonds and Bobby Bonilla and pitcher Neal Heaton were on the team.

You know what? I’m not going to be a party pooper. They have been playing hard all season. Let ’em enjoy this one.

Unhappy Days With The Ponz(i)

For the love of Allah, can we now stop calling the world’s biggest Ponzi scheme a “trust fund”?

President Hussein on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.

“I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,” the Muslim Wookie Fucker said in an interview with cBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, according to excerpts released by cBS News.

The Hussein administration and many economists have warned of economic catastrophe if the United States does not raise the amount it is legally allowed to borrow by August 2.

I miss the good ol’ days when Muslims only held a airline passengers hostage.

And how’s this for timing? Earlier this week the better half went to a retirement seminar regarding her 401(k). The seminar host showed some diagram with a three-legged “retirement chair” — one leg reprsented a 401(k), the other represented an IRA and the other represented Social Insecurity. Mrs. kkk told me she almost laughed out loud when she saw that diagram.

But here’s the saddest thing of all regarding the better half’s experience: she was the youngest person at this seminar. There wasn’t anyone even close to her age — somewhere in the low 30s. Mrs. kkk said everyone else at this seminar looked like they were a few years away from retirement.

If you are under 40 and haven’t started saving for your golden years, then it’s your own damn fault you’ll have to buy Alpo and Fancy Feast in 2050.
