Braves Billy Wagner Misses Out On All-Star Final Vote

Braves closer Billy Wagner had a chance to make the All-Star team in the final vote, which was conducted over the last week, but Reds slugger Joey Votto beat out Wagner and the other contenders for the final spot. The voters did the right thing to send the NL OPS leader to the All-Star game.

It would have been nice to have another Braves player in there, but Wags has been there before, and I'd prefer his 39-year old surgically repaired elbow got some rest than went full steam for any length of time in an exhibition game. There still is a chance he makes the team if an injury occurs which necessitates him being added.
