Ha! I totally blew it on that one. He's on all my teams and everything. Well, that sucks because he won't be an all-star then and he deserves it. Matsuzaka deserves it too, but freakin Gil Meche is going to get a spot. The only other guy who would get a spot for the Royals is Buck and there's no way he's getting in as an AL catcher.
Jenks will get in as the lone White Sox rep, and Hamels will get in because there's no way that LaRussa is going to stack the team with Mets, when the voters are already doing so. But, I forgot it's LaRussa so Izzy will probably blow Valverde's chances of getting in.
The managers have a tough time with the 1 player per team rule, having to come up with someone, anyone to play for their team. Mark Redman was an All-Star last year for chrissakes!
Ian Snell can and should go from Pittsburgh.
Shields and Reyes should go. Until last night Reyes had not blown a save opp all season. Jamie could be 10-2 right now if he had run support. There are others on the Rays that an argument could be made to be on the all-star game as well, but they won't make it
