Domonic Brown, Cliff Lee to Represent Phillies in 2013 MLB All-Star Game

The Philadelphia Phillies have not been a very good team by any means this season, but they have had their share of bright spots, namely starting pitcher Cliff Lee and outfielder Domonic Brown. Both received well-deserved recognition tonight, being named to the All-Star Game to be held in Citi Field this July.

Brown has become one of the league’s premier sluggers.

Lee, selected to his fourth All-Star Game, is having a Cy Young-worthy season. With the rest of the staff struggling, he has been a stopper all season, going 10-2 with a 2.73 ERA and an impressive 0.98 WHIP. He’s also fanned 119 batters. He also gets a $50,000 bonus for making the NL roste.r

Brown, selected to his first All-Star Game, has finally lived up to the potential Phillies fans have been waiting to see for several years now. Once the most disappointing prospect in the system, Brown was even mentioned in trades for bums like Alfonso Soriano! Now, he’s one of the few untouchable players on this team, hitting .279 and leading the team with 22 home runs and 60 runs batted in.
