I’m a bit shocked that Michael Conforto, 24-year-old Mets outfielder, was actually named to this year’s MLB All-Star Game. Too many times do deserved candidates go overlooked. (Uhm… how about Dodgers’ shortstop Cory Seager?) Conforto’s story is going to be played up in the New York area through the all-star weekend festivities; rightfully so, it’s one worth telling. When he was called up for the first time on July 24, 2015, he impressed right away with a slash line in a mere 56 games to finish the season off of .270/.335/.506. For a rookie, those stats are eye-popping.
