    All Star Selection Discussion Thread

    First big news from the All Star game selection show...Josh Hamilton will start in the game! That's SO great for him and I am so happy about his success this year.

    NL team hasn't been announced yet but the AL starters have been announced and there's not any huges surprises.

    C - Joe Mauer
    1B - Kevin Youkalis
    2B - Dustin Pedroia
    SS- Derek Jeter (sorry, I'm not a fan, LOL)
    3B - Alex Rodriguez
    OF - Manny Ramirez, Josh Hamilton, Ichiro Suzuki
    DH - David Ortiz (who apparently won't play due to his injury)

    No news on the pitching staff for the AL yet. They're interviewing Josh right now.

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    The NL's infield consists of Lance Berkman at first, Philly's Chase Utley at second, Atlanta's Chipper Jones at third and Florida's Hanley Ramirez at short. Former Yankee and current Cub Alfonso Soriano starts in left, teammate Kosuke Fukudome will be in center and Cincinnati's Ken Griffey, Jr. gets the nod in right. The Cubs' Geovany Soto is the starting catcher.

    They were wrong. Ryan Braun is the other guy in the outfield. How the heck did Griffey not get in there?!

    It was probably force of habit they wrote it down. Perhaps a Home Run Derby invite for Jr. I hear those things can mess your swing up for months. Might be just the thing for Griffey.

    Got nothing to complain about, he didn't deserve to make an "All-Star" game this year.

    I swear Junior was just in the top three for the OF when they showed the stats during the Fox game yesterday afternoon. This is beyond weird.

    EDINSON!!!

    Junior was like a couple hundred thousand votes ahead of Braun a few days ago.

    Interesting.


    Is this on TV?

    Wow, Edinson is our only All Star this year. I can't argue with that too much but I'm shocked Junior somehow fell out of the top three OFs when he was just there yesterday.

    Uses HGH and he's still not as good as BP

    Last year not winning the Gold Glove was a crime, he will win it this year if he keeps up this amazing pace he's on.

    It's channel 57 on my cable but I have no idea if that's the same for you.

    And thanks to Chase Utley, Brandon will probably never make the All Star team unless the manager or the players vote him there.
