Alyssa Milano: Hypocrite, Traitor

joshmannyAlyssa Milano is one of baseball’s greatest ambassadors.テつ Which makes her offensive recent blog post about her All-Star ballot all the more disappointing.

Ms. Milano is baseball’s unofficial hottest female fan/business partner (she’s a Dodgers season ticket holder and has a line of MLB women’s clothing). She occasionally chimes in with her opinions on an official MLB Pro Blog.

Her NL All-Star picks were those of a Dodgers homer, with one very notable exception — while voting Dodgers for the other 7 positions, she chose the Mets Carlos Beltran over one of the greatest Dodgers ever, beloved hero Manny Ramirez.

It’s almost unthinkable, but she tries to defend her All-Star snub: “I could not vote for Manny, because it is a bad message to send to our kids.”

Crazy, right?テつ Manny’s served his time for an honest mistake and had to forfeit over $7 million, money that will most likely help his first place team get better around the trade deadline.テつ He’s eligible for the game, why not vote for him? Especially when you’re voting for every other Dodger.テつ And when home-field in the World Series is on the line.

But wait — it gets worse and more morally repugnant.

Because look at her AL ballot.テつ I doubt she put much thought into it because it closely mirrors the leading vote-getters.テつ Diminutive Dustin Pedroia instead of Ian Kinsler and Torii Hunter of the Angels over Ichiro are the only differences, otherwise she votes for current AL leaders Mauer, Youkilis, Longoria, Jeter, Bay and Hamilton.

While voting for Manny’s effeminate gutless replacement in Boston would be disturbing enough, what’s really offensive is her endorsement of Texas OF Josh Hamilton.

First, Hamilton has by no means had an All-Star first half — he’s currently on his second visit to the disabled list and has only hit .240 with a .746 OPS in 35 games this season.テつ (Manny by comparison hit .348 with a 1.133 OPS in 27 games.)

More importantly, Josh Hamilton is one of the worst examples for children to ever disgrace a Major League uniform.テつ Bigots like Josh Hamilton are far worse examples for children than innocent victims of an overzealous “PED” testing program.テつ ESPNテ「竄ャ邃「s Mike Tirico certainly doesn’t think Hamilton’s a good example for children:

Hamilton went to rehab 8 times. He tried to commit suicide (though married with a child) 5 times. He is so deep into his addiction that he has a handler follow him around and is not allowed to have more than $20 in his wallet at any time.

Clearly, Ms. Milano owes Manny an apology.テつ Fortunately, she can also vote 24 more times to correct her mistake.テつ (While you’re at it Carl Crawford and Jason Bartlett are far more deserving than Hamilton and Jeter.)テつ You dear reader can also let your tiny internet voices be heard by voting for truly deserving All-Stars like Manny.

  1. Ms. T says:

    Well, I voted for Crawford and Bartlett, that’s for sure!

    I don’t know what planet you reside on, but anyone who compares states will see Jeter is the clear choice to start the Allstar game at SS over relative unknowns. He has once again proved his worth on and off the field, donated time and money to many efforts, but most importantly, his prowess on O and D-he is the best damn SS in the league, hands down. Captain cluth. Mr. Reliable. -vote for Jeter, not some unknown.

  3. Brett says:

    Jeter sucks.

  4. David says:

    I have to agree with Alyssa Milano on her choice of not choosing Manny. I too am a huge Doyers fan, but know that Manny didn’t do squat during the first half of the season. And the whole thing with Jeter, I guess I’m cool with that. He is a good player still.
