    I can’t believe that not one cardinal was picked for the all star team. Were they disqualified because they made the playoffs? Swauger, Cutler, Curt Smith and Chambers had great offense and defense performances and Blake King led most of the league in several stats. Blake King should have made the all star team midway through the season and at the end.
