Brewers’ Lucroy ‘a better way’ than Cardinals’ Molina for All-Star Game
Jonathan Lucroy and the Milwaukee Brewers want you to know that, when it comes to voting for the All-Star Game, there is a better option than incumbent Yadier Molina.
In a good-natured attack ad aimed at getting Lucroy voted into the Midsummer Classic over Molina, FOX Sports Wisconsin asks baseball fans to "cast a ballot for change" and choose "the best catcher in baseball."
Molina, who has been voted an All-Star in each of the past five seasons, is batting .284 with five home runs and 25 RBI for the second-place Cardinals. Lucroy, who has yet to play in an All-Star Game, is batting .335 — highest among all major-league catchers — with six homers and 32 RBI for the National League Central-leading Brewers.
Statistics aside, the ad further implores voters to pick Lucroy because "most importantly, he’s not a St. Louis Cardinal."
