    Who's got a legitimate shot at being an All-Star this year?

    MLB All-Stars seem to get to play in that game based on what they did the year before.

    I can see Arroyo, Harang for sure having a shot.

    I hope that Dunn, Phillips, and Gonzalez have first halves worthy of All-Star consideration.

    Last year's...

    You have to figure that there will be a lot of Cardinals with LaRussa being the manager. Ideally, though, Griffey has the kind of first half that gets him elected. He's always in the top 5 or 6 no matter how he performs. Good numbers from him go a long way toward the Reds contending.

    Don't call it a comeback if Josh Hamilton somehow makes the All Star team

    I think David Ross could have a shot. Catcher isnt exactly a deep offensive position in the NL and if can hit like he did last year he would be worthy of an all star selection.
