    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...

    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?
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    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.

    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.
