What a joke.

Biggest joke being Brandon Phillips riding the pine over Martin Prado. :thumbdown

Howard DHing over Votto is a HUGE joke....Wright got voted in, and Phillps def should be starting.

I wouldn't get too worked up over a glorified exhibition game (which is really all it is). They'll each get a chance to contribute I'd guess.

You guys do realize that the only starter that Manuel got to pick was the DH right? The people that get voted in are the ones that start.

He got the pick the 2nd baseman and one of the OF I think due to injuries.

Still being said nothing I care less about than who is starting the AS game.

i hope none of them play, let them soak in the fun, but especially Rolen his body needs the rest and i don't want to risk any injury.

I was unaware the amount of votes decide the starting lineup as well.

Still unfortunate.

And if the DH was up to manuel its bad enough he picked howard over votto. But starting over votto as well. Is just a joke.

The stats are overwhelming in Vottos favor.

I rather them not start myself, it gives one of them a chance to be a hero later in the game when its like 0-0 or 1-1 for the first 6 innings.

Whom does Howard play for? That's all that matters...

I expected Wright over Rolen..Wright is having a stud year..Thought for sure BP and Votto would be starting though.

Manuel said he started Howard because he's his guy, he's got more than 100 AB's against lefthanders and can hit them, and has 65 RBI's.

Looking at his stats, they've all got more than 100 AB's and he hits the worst of the three first basemen against lefthanders: .244 vs. Votto's .250 and Gonzalez's .330.

I wish he'd stop with the baloney and just say he's his guy.

Hey I understand you want to see Reds in the All-Star game but I am confused by what you consider to be aggregious oversites.

Prado and Phillips have very similar stats with Prado having a higher Avg, OBP, SLG and OPS while playing half his games in a much less hitter friendly park.

Wright has better number across the board than Rolen except in SLG, again with half his games in a much less hitter friendly park.

Votto is the only guy that is clearly better than the guy in front of him but is on the bench due to favoritism. While it may be unfair, I am sure if roles were reversed Dusty Baker would take Votto over Ryan and very few people here would be killing Dusty for being a homer so I won't be a hypocrite and kill Charlie Manuel for the same thing.

Not a big deal, they'll get their playing time. And if they don't, even better.

Even if he did Prado is having a better year than BP and we have noone in the outfield. It doesn't matter though.

I would actually prefer if none of them even saw the field. in fact i would rather them be at thier homes, relaxing and resting for the 3 days off. ecspecially rhodes and rolen. im more worried about the rest of the season than the allstar game.

I hope Rhodes comes into the game for an out, I know it would mean a lot to him.
