I think Dale Murphy is ineligible. He played All Star-caliber baseball many times. He may have been the only All Star on his team because the rest of the team sucked, but he was not selected specifically because the team needed a representative; he'd still have made it even without that rule. There are way better examples of what #s is talking about. For example, in 2015 Brock Holt of ARE Red Sox hit .292 with 2 HRs in the first half, and was selected as an All Star outfielder despite being like the 75th best outfielder in the American League. He was on the team solely because there were no other good players on the team and they had to pick someone who had no business being in the game otherwise.


Yeah sorry I missed that the first time and also I have a giant Dale Murphy boner so, shit happened

Right so Dale Murphy doesnt qualify but Kurt Stilwell would.

Solid hustle, Wolf. Just trying to brainstorm Cubs, I know Kosuke Fukudome made the ASG one year, don't remember if he was the sole representative. Pretty sure Ted Lilly was the only guy one year. I think Joe Borowski made it as a sole guy one year. I'm almost 100% that Travis Wood was our sole representative a few years ago.

Jorge Orta, OF, made it for the Indians one year.

Was the ONLY non-pitcher to not get in the game.

Boyz- look up a fella by the name of Mike Grace. Not Mark Grace, Mike Grace.
My bad he did not make the all star team in 1996

Gamey work here sons. Big ups to Wolf to picking up the ball and running in the opposite direction. At least it got this thing going.

The team Wolf put out there could contend for a pennant/world series. We are looking for a squad of guys that only made the ASG because someone from their club had to be named to the All Star Game. That squad should win around 83-87 games in a season and misses the playoffs. To that end, I want to nominate 2 time lone rep Scott Cooper:

Scott Cooper, Red Sox (1993 and 1994)
Possibly the worst two-time All-Star in baseball history, Cooper, a third baseman for the Red Sox, inexplicably made it without ever being in the top 10 of anything, anytime. Cooper was the lone BoSox All-Star selection each year; in seven seasons, he finished with career totals of 33 homers and 211 RBI, and a .723 lifetime OPS.
