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.


Dice-K : 8-5, 4.18 ERA, 93 K , 1.27 WHIP
Meche : 4-6, 3.00 ERA, 71 K, 1.25 WHIP

The record can be attributed to the Kansas City Royal....I think Meche deserves it more than Dice-K.

Yeah he probably does. Both of them have been inconsistent but Meche has had better games. Shields deserves it above both of them though.

You also have to look at which pitchers have to go because nobody else on the team is good enough.

KC - Meche definitely
Pit - Gorzellany
Hou - Oswalt?
CHW - Jenks
Bal - Bedard?
LAD - Saito/Penny
TB - Shields/Reyes

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.

Agree.

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 :/

I'd say Carlos Lee should go from the Astros

Hmm tough, always gotta consider the one player per team rule. With that in mind, here's what I think it will be:

AL Starter -- Haren
SP -- Santana, Beckett, Shields, Meche, Lackey, Verlander, Escobar
RP -- Putz, Rodriguez, Papelbon, Jenks

NL Starter -- Peavy
SP -- Sheets, Penny, Young, Snell, Hill, Smoltz, Webb (tough to leave Maine off)
RP -- Cordero, Saito, Fuentes, Isringhausen

I agree he shouldn't be in the ASG, but its going to happen like Yao Ming in the NBA; All the Asian fans will vote to see Dice-K in the ASG...
