    Who WILL make the All-Star team from the Reds in 2010?

    We did this last year, and I thought it would be fun to do it again this year. Who WILL make the All-Star team this year from the Reds? Not who you think deserves to make the team, but who will actually make the team?

    I think Votto is in, and maybe Rolen.

    Leake would need 3 STELLAR starts to be named.

    no one from the pen.

    Votto, Rolen, Rhodes and Leake. Jonny G will be there in spirit.

    I for one am hoping Rhodes flies under the radar and isn't named. He could use a break.

    Votto is a virtual lock even at such a tough position. I think Rolen and Leake will go as well.

    Totally agree.

    To me, it would be a complete sham if Rhodes doesn't make it. Guy has been the best reliever in all of baseball.

    If there is any true lock from the Reds, Rhodes should be it.

    I think Gomes, just cause he is up there in RBI and the common fan, will say hey that is good enough for me. That and the mohawk.

    Rolen, Votto and Rhodes. Maybe Phillips, depending on the roster breakdown with the 1 rep teams.

    Phillips deserves it, Rolen's in, Rhodes and Votto also deserve to be in but I doubt we'd get more than 3 at the outside.

    If Rhodes is picked...he would most likely be one of the only non-starter/ no-saves player ever to be selected.

    Re: Who WILL make the All-Star team from the Reds in 2010?

    Ok to do this we need to know what the 'needs' are. To know the needs we have to know who is likely to make it from other teams. I'm working on the 33 man roster used last year, if I'm mistaken then that throws all this in the waste bin.

    West

    Dodgers: Andre Ethier OF[v], Jonathan Broxton RP
    Padres: Heath Bell RP, Adrian Gonzalez 1B
    Giants: Tim Lincecum SP, Brian Wilson RP
    Rockies: Ubaldo Jimenez SP, Troy Tulowitski
    D'backs: Mark Reynolds 3B


    East

    Phillies: Chase Utley 2B [v], Placido Polanco 3B [v], Roy Halladay SP
    Braves: Jason Heyward OF [v], Brian McCann C
    Mets: Mike Pelphrey SP
    Marlins: Hanley Ramirez SS [v], Josh Johnson SP
    Nationals: Ryan Zimmerman 3B, Matt Capps RP

    Central

    Cubs: Marlon Byrd OF, Carlos Silva SP
    Astros: Matt Lindstrom RP
    Cardinals: Albert Pujols IB [V], Yadier Molina C [v]; Adam Wainright P, Jaime Garcia SP
    Pirates: Andrew McCutchen OF
    Brewers: Ryan Braun OF [v], Corey Hart OF, Prince Fielder 1B, Casey McGhee

    Total Roster before the Reds addition[s] 31

    Therefore the Reds representative[s] will be:

    Joey Votto 1B
    Jonny Gomes OF

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Re: Who WILL make the All-Star team from the Reds in 2010?

    Rhodes could lose his spot easily with a 1 bad appearance that pulls his ERA up north of 2.00. Non-closer relievers aren't often taken and have be utterly dominant -- no-brainers.

    Phillips is the surest bet IMO because Utley will win the popular vote and is deserving to go anyways. After that, Phillips is at the head of a group guys who have performed similarly including Uggla, Kelly Johnson and Martin Prado. Given his reputation and the Reds place in the standings, that bods well for BP.

    At 1B, Pujols will obviously win the vote and then you're battling for backups. Gonzalez and Huff might be their team's only reps depending on what pitchers are taken. For Pittsburgh it's basically down to McCutchen and Garrett Jones. In short, Votto has a lot of competition.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
