Adam Dunn is long overdue... maybe he'll get his shot this year.

I think these guys should for sure be in it...

Sexson
Huff
Dunn
Tex
Gomes
Peralta
Aram
Crosby

it might help have the opposite effect as Abreu's last year ;-D

It's something that is often talked about. Griffey used to talk about making sure he didn't let the derby change his swing, because lots of guys would get out of whack.

I'd like to see Morneau in there. He could represent Canada if they do the seperate nations thing again.

It seemed to happen a bit with Carlos Lee last year too.

Pre All-Star -- Slugged .528 (22 HR, .864 OPS)
Post All-Star -- Slugged .437 (10 HR, .747 OPS)

With Carlos, that's a little more reasonable, largely because he's such a streaky hitter. Abreu really took a dive though, which was so unusual seeing as how he's quite consistent.
