Numbers Don't Lie

By Cody Sharrett

Major League Soccer announced its inactive All-Stars on Wednesday afternoon, with one obvious snub: Crew goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum. Gruenebaum should have been at least a reserve--if not a starter-- in tonight's MLS All-Star game in Philadelphia. To not even include the Hebrew Hammer on the inactive list is just downright mindboggling.

Here's how Gruenebaum stacks up against the four goalkeepers selected to the All-Star team:

Player GP GS MINS SHTS SV GA GAA PKG/A Sv%
Andy Gruenebaum 18 18 1620 85 65 19 1.06 2/3 76
Jimmy Nielsen 21 21 1890 68 50 19 0.90 3/3 74
Dan Kennedy 19 19 1710 86 61 21 1.10 1/1 71
Nick Rimando 20 20 1800 71 47 24 1.20 1/2 66
Jon Busch 20 20 1755 76 48 24 1.23 2/3 63

The numbers speak for themselves.
