Best Phillies over last half century never to make an All Star team
6 of 6
1 – Pat Burrell
Burrell spent the first nine of his 12-year career with the Phillies. He hit 20 or more home runs nine times, including three seasons with 30 or more. Burrell’s best season was in 2002 in which he hit 39 doubles, 37 home runs, and 116 RBI. He also blasted 32 home runs and knocked in a career-best 117 in 2005 and was a key component for the 2008 World Series champions, hitting 33 home runs and knocking in 86. Burrell ranks among the top home run hitters in franchise history, yet inexplicably didn’t make a single All-Star roster.
Which other players do you think should have gotten an All-Star appearance but never did?
