Blue Jays Mailbag: Smoak Is Hitting His Way into the All-Star Conversation

The Blue Jays are coming off an actual, meaningful series of baseball, and now head west looking to continue their climb up the standings with a string of games in Oakland and Seattle. The bad vibes of April are a fast fading memory. We’re actually going to have a real summer in these parts!

And so yet again, as we open up this week’s Blue Jays mailbag, we’re greeted with the vaguely positive! Or, at the very least, not the hopelessly, desperately negative. (Which I think I’ve been saying here just about every week lately, but that’s only because I cannot underline enough just how incredibly awful the month of April was.)

If you have a Blue Jays question you’d like me to tackle for next week, be sure to send it to stoeten@gmail.com. As always, I have not read any of Griff’s answers.

Does Smoak make the all-star team? If he does is it like that time when Saunders made the all star team??
James

All stars in the fan vote are frequently made based on hot starts to the season. So, does Smoak have a chance given the rest of the AL 1Bs?
Jonathan

I… uh… I really couldn’t possibly care less.

It would be nice for Smoak if he made the All-Star team. It would be great for the Jays and their fans if he kept hitting well enough for it to happen. But… I dunno. Meh. It’ll either happen or it won’t.
