Five Mudcats Named All-Stars Today

Recommended Posts

The selections were made by, "a vote of Southern League field managers, radio broadcasters, and print media."


I think the honor is more important than the game itself. They gave the selections to the players with the best 1st halves w/o worrying about the actual all star game.


But it is always fun to see Willingham crush!

Jason Stokes is on the DL (placed there on Sunday, 6/27). He was replaced by Mike Brown on the Mudcats roster.


That leaves :


Bill Murphy - P

Josh Willingham - C

Josh Wilson - SS


Today:Carolina lost 5-4

Bill Murphy pitched but was not in the decision. He went 5 innings giving up 2 earned runs and striking out 7.

Josh Wilson went 0-4 with 1 walk and 2 k's.

Josh Willingham went 2-5 with 1 double, 1 rbi, 1 walk, and 2 k's.

Stokes injured his wrist about two weeks ago (6/13/4 - left the game after hitting a double), but they didn't put him on the DL imminently, they waited till he saw a hand specialist in South Florida first.


An article today (6/29/4) says he is expected to be out 1-2 more weeks.


Stokes update


In my mind, any wrist problems at this point are a bad sign. This is the third year in a row he has had wrist problems. At some point you have to start calling it chronic.
