Handy man: Rendon dangerous in any count

Quote:The hands are what helped make Rendon the top collegiate hitter out of Rice University in 2011, and a National League MVP Award candidate in his second big league season. They allow him to swing a 33 1/2-inch, 32-ounce bat, a top-heavy weapon with the -1.5 weight distribution typically reserved for more lumbering sluggers (weight distributions of -2 or slightly more are more common).

RE: Rendon
Hopefully with all the money he will be making after he gets a new contract, he can finally afford a haircut. 05-stirthepot

He had his 15th homer tonight. The Arizona and Colorado 3B have good numbers too but his numbers compare favorably to every NL 3B. He probably won't make the All Star team just due to the numbers game but it's a shame that some of his teammates (Harper, Zimmerman and Murphy) are piling up huge voter totals and Rendon isn't close to those totals.

Funny story and photos on an outstanding catch by Rendon in last night's game.

RE: Rendon
Didn't make All Star game roster but odds were against him making it.

Still, .298, 16 HR and 50 RBI at the halfway point of the season is pretty impressive.

BTW, 5 Astros make the All Star roster, tying a franchise record. It's hard to fathom a scenario in which the Astros won't be the AL West champs this year. And I'm having a hard time figuring out which AL team can prevent them from making the World Series.

RE: Rendon
Anthony is in the Final 5 fan voting for the final NL roster spot, with the players selected by the players. Stat-wise one could easily argue that Anthony deserves it over Bryant, Turner, Bour and Reynolds, but knowing how Chicago fans flood the voting box, I'd be very surprised if Bryant doesn't get the nod.

Here's the voting form...

It's still so weird to me to combine the terms "Astros" and "AL".....

Someone from ESPN thinks leaving AR off the All Star roster was the biggest snub:
