Indian uprising & All Star snub

As much fun as I had this weekend the Indians had even more. They won 3 of 4 games in Baltimore and came home to sweep a double-header from the Tigers yesterday.
I get the feeling that Travis Hafner is not pleased with being left off the All Star roster and is taking it out on the opposition. 3 of his six hits yesterday were homers. Personally, I'm not too upset that the Tribe only had one player selected for the All Star game. The voting is obviously heavily influenced by early season performance and the Indians got off to a horrendous start offensively. Why would a fan filling out a ballot in early May consider players barely hitting over the Mendoza line(.200)? The Indians strong bullpen is the primary reason they survived the awful start and were able to climb back into the Wild Card race. So it is appropriate that the bullpen be represented by Bob Wickman. Additionally, it is a long season so a couple days off aren't such a bad idea either.
