Eckstein
.311
1 HR
19 RBI
50 Runs
6 SB

Phillips
.306
7 HR
45 RBI
42 Runs
16 SB


How in the world was this clown named over Phillips???? I don't buy the excuse that they needed another SS. That's crap. This is such a political game, there is no way I'm watch the All Star Game.

It's a joke.

I guess that's the unfair advantage of having your manager as the All-Star team's manager.

LaRussa isn't the ASG manager, Garner is.

I thought Garner managed the Astros. Eckstein plays for the Cards.

fans love David Eckstein and have no clue who Brandon Phillips is outside of the Reds and Indians fan base.

exactly. IMO the all star game is for little kids and as David Eckstein is a little kid I think it makes perfect sense.

The SS (Reyes) got hurt, it's natural that a SS was picked.

But then again many think the world is out to get the Reds so have at it.

I hope Garner just sticks with Renteria the entire game.

Valid point, but Felipe played 3B in the ASG last year.

A lot of shortstops should have made the team before Eckstein:

Omar Vizquel
Hanley Ramirez
Bill Hall
Khalil Greene
Jimmy Rollins
Felipe Lopez

of course... Eck has a higher batting average...:help:

Narron wants to trade Edwin for him.

Bill Hall should be on the All-Star team.

If I had my druthers, none of the Reds would play in the AS game. Despite Bud's protestations to the contrary, this one doesn't count, but does provide each player another shot at getting injured. If Edwin had sprained his ankle in the ASG...

this one doesn't count
17 of the last 20 World Series winners had home field advantage.

Just sayin. ;) :D

So this one counts for the 28 teams that aren't going to reach the WS?

Where's Narron in all this? He's on Garner's AS coaching staff...why isn't he in Garner's grill lobbying for BP?

Can't disagree with that notion, but we don't know who the two teams that are going to make it are right now either.

It's an imperfect system at best. The only way to really make it matter to manager/coaches and players is to throw a bunch of money out there for the winners and I'm pretty sure I don't want to see that either.

I'd almost rather see it go back to the fun/laugh fest that it had become before it "counted" and just chalk it up as a true exhibition and nothing more.

maybe because he doesn't deserve to make it?

Who BP? Or Narron?

When a player who was voted in by the players and coaches drops out, they always go first to the player who got the next most votes at the same position. When Contreras dropped out, they asked Schilling first to replace him because he had the next most votes at the same position. When he also couldn't pitch, then they asked Liriano. And Eckstein had the next highest vote total at SS behind Reyes and Renteria.
