    Lynn an All Star

    But no Cueto? Nah, no bias from LaRussa.

    Cueto did not make it.

    Given the current pitching schedule, would Cueto even be able to pitch in the game? If not, perhaps that is why he wasn't selected.

    Cueto wasn't likely to pitch. Still deserved the pick. So did Phillips.

    Well at least Phillips and Cueto will have a chip on their shoulder. A joke as they deserved a slot, but not the worst thing in the world as a Reds fan...

    I'm not too bothered by this. Only so many spots to go around.

    Hoping Phillips is a final five choice. They've announced Chipper and Harper as two of the five on the selection show.

    Lance Lynn DOES NOT deserve to be an All Star. Only so many spots, but that choice is pathetic.

    And after everyone is picked, players start begging off, and they scramble to find fill-ins. Like Rolen, was it last year?

    I think players can no longer beg off - only injury absences are allowed.

    Bruce and Chappy made it. Cueto is punishment for the fight. Phillips probably a need to accomodate somebody else.

    Agreed. I was speaking of Cueto and BP being left off.

    I still think it's a joke. To me, this just shows how petty LaRussa is. It's not the end of the world, but Phillips is the best 2B in the NL, and Cueto is having one of the best seasons of any SP. An absolute joke they're left off.

    There seems to a spike in aches and pains around this time.

    Lance Lynn is a joke. No Cueto is a joke. Phillips is the best 2nd basemen in the league.

    However, I'm not too bad. It's pretty rad having at least 5 All Star caliber players on this team. 3 is good, 5 should be there, but hey! Can't complain.
