Damn I’m an All Star 😭🙌🏾 #Night— Taijuan Walker (@tai_walker) July 10, 2021
Look who is going to Colorado for the Mets.
From the NY POST
Taijuan Walker, one of the unheralded linchpins of the first-place Mets, is going to the All-Star Game for the first time as a replacement, manager Luis Rojas said after the team’s 13-4 pasting of the Pirates at Citi Field on Friday night.
“It’s finally starting to come and hit me now,” said the 28-year-old Walker, who earned a $50,000 bonus with the All-Star nod. “Everyone’s texting me, my family’s texting me, so it’s really cool.
“Once I got to the big leagues, it’s always been a goal to be an All-Star, to be the best of the best and go out there and compete against the best and be around the best players in the league.”
The Mets had such a steal of on offseason with Walker. He's pitched well.Pitched like a bulldog in tough spots. Last night Walker let in a run and had bases loaded in the First Inning and was able to get his way out of trouble. Next to deGrom,he has to be my favorite pitcher on the team. Walker def deserves it..
