Funny if you’re not a St. Louis Cardinals fan.
The ad, which is definitely an attack ad, encourages those to vote for Lucroy as an alternative to putting another Cardinals player in the Mid-Summer Classic. And Lucroy certainly has the numbers to defend his selection.
Lucroy blasted two more home runs on Tuesday to give him eight for the season. He’s now hitting .340 with a .938 OPS and 37 RBIs. He’s definitely outslugging most NL catchers, though Devin Mesoraco and Evan Gattis are putting up some pretty excellent offensive stats. Plus, prior to Tuesday’s big game, Lucroy led all MLB catchers in WAR, according to Fangraphs.
Forget going anti-Cardinals — Lucroy should make it on merit.
