    Uggla beats out DatDudeBP for All-Star Game Start

    Uggla beats out DatDudeBP for All-Star Game Start.

    Uggla:
    Average: .235
    Homeruns: 11
    RBIs: 43
    OBP: .363
    Fielding %: .978
    Errors: 8

    Phillips:
    Average: .288
    Homeruns: 10
    RBIs: 46
    OBP: .330
    Fielding %: .994
    Errors: 2

    Phillips leads (dominates) everything except for OBP and homeruns (by one). How did he get the shaft from fans?

    Maybe retweeting for votes isn't as important as having a fan base thar cares to vote.

    Lol Phillips and Cueto left off of the roster, how surprising.

    Cueto didn't make the team. I'm sure TLR will try to say that Cueto couldn't have pitched anyway, but we all know that's a bunch of BS. He still could've been selected and then replaced.

    You call someone a b*tch and he doesn't pick you. You reap what you sow. You kick someone's player in the face with spikes on and he doesn't pick you. You reap what you sow.

    I know that automatically makes me a hater or something. Who cares. They both got what they deserved if you ask me.

    Just stating the obvious, man. I think we all knew Cueto and Phillips stood no chance unless they got voted in.

    David Wright not starting was the craziest thing I noticed...and did Michael Bourn not make it as a reserve? Oh and Bruce was surprising for me.

    Uggla got off to a hot start and Phillips didn't. Plus with the markets each team plays for,I'm not surprised. I'm glad, maybe they can take some much needed time off.

    Would love to see this team make it to the WS...

    Let's see what Dusty's ASG team would look like.

    It should be about what happens on the field, not about petty grudges. I'll say I expected nothing less from that drunk LaRussa.

    I don't get the big fuss of our players not in the ASG. It gives our players a chance to take a mental break and step away from the game for a few days. With our team trying to make a strong playoff run I'm glad we don't have everyone that deserves to be on the team on it. If we had a team like a years past who sucked, then yeah i would be disappointed, not this year for me. Just my opinion tho.

    Explain to me why a retired manager gets to manage the all star game that has ramifications...

    Because it's the rules....and Tony LaRussa will try to win. Regardless what you think of the guy, he will honor the game.

    Cueto should have been in over Chapman, cant blame Larussa for not wanting Cueto or Phillips if anyone on this board were managing the Cards during that brawl probably wouldn't like any of them either.

    And Larussa is one of the best baseball managers of all time
