    David Eckstein over Phillips??????

    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.

    I guess he's just scrappier.

    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.

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

    I hope Garner just sticks with Renteria the entire game.

    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...
