The Worst "Ask The Booth" Question In History

It's Jerry from the Upper West Side! Love the visor, son!

During the bottom of the third inning of this afternoon's game between the Mets and the Phillies on SNY, Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez checked in with Eamon McAnaney (@EamonMcAnaney) for today's "Ask The Booth" question from a Mets fan. This was a chance for one lucky fan to at once stand apart from the crowd but also represent Mets fans generally. That fan was Jerry from the Upper West Side, who took his time, composed himself, and offered this cogent masterpiece:

Gentlemen, do you believe that because David Wright didn't get in to the All-Star Game as a starter, do you believe that he should get in because the fans vote, we voted for him, and I don't understand why he's not in?

UPDATE: I cc-ed Eamon on the Tweet for this post and, after suggesting I take it easy on Jerry, who was understandably nervous and forgot his question, was kind enough to provide the question Jerry really wanted to ask:

Now that's a legitimately interesting question, Jerry, though I'd argue the better question is, "Should the All-Star Game actually count for anything?" The answer to that one, of course, is "No."
