Chris Young snubbed.

Despite statistics that paint a significantly different picture, former Princeton basketball center and San Diego Padres starting pitcher Chris Young was not named to the 2007 National League All-Star team this evening.

Young is in the top three in the National League in nearly every important pitching statistic:

1st in Hits Per Nine Innings (6.42).

1st in Opponent Batting Average (.197).

2nd in Walks/Hits Per Innings Pitched (1.09).

2nd in Slugging (.280).

2nd in On-Base Against (.277).

3rd in ERA (2.14).

His numbers as a starting pitcher are stronger than those of All-Star selections Cole Hamels and John Smoltz. Compare them yourself, then shake your head.
