The 2012 MLB All-Star Game rosters were announced Sunday, and New York Mets fans got possibly the biggest shock of the day, as third basemen David Wright failed to receive enough votes to earn a starting spot in Kansas City, July 10.
Wright, a mid-season MVP candidate, will backup starter Pablo Sadoval, who used a late push from San Francisco Giants fans to earn the nod. At the last ballot count, Wright had a 464,000 vote lead on Sadoval, but Mets fans failed to help Wright close it out in the end.
Wright, however, will play in his sixth All-Star Game, as he was named as a reserve for the National League squad. Wright will join teammate starting pitcher R.A. Dickey, who makes his first All-Star team.
