First of all, I don't recall Meek getting 7 save opportunities this year. Second, i doubt Meek would have a problem with AL hitters with his stuff.
Mariotti is an idiot.
Here's Mariotti's quote:
If your kid asks why Strasburg was omitted but someone named Evan Meek made it, how do you explain? Meek, also a relief pitcher, is the lone representative of the pathetic Pittsburgh Pirates. He has had seven save opportunities this season and converted exactly one, making it curious how he has a 0.98 earned run average. Whatever the reason, no one wants to: (1) see Evan Meek in the All-Star Game, maybe not even his friends and family; or (2) see Evan Meek try to retire American League batters when Strasburg and his drop-dead array of stuff are at home.
