Why would anyone care whether any particular player is or isn't on the AS team? A meaningless exhibition game of virtually no value. Oh yeah right...everyone is deeply interested in who gets the extra home game in the WS. I mean I would worry deeply about that.
It just seems like the principle of the whole thing. The intergrity of the All-Star game as a whole has lost all of its credit with me. Liriano should have been chosen, simple as that. Hafner is one of the premier hitters in the majors. Just very sad...there are always All-Star snubs in every sport. However, I don't think its been quite as magnified as this year. Maybe b/c its Ozzie Guillen. I don't know.
