I don't actually know why the fans don't vote for the pitchers. They might just as well.

AL - Santana, Haren, Lackey, Sabathia, Beckett, Meche, Shields, Garland
Putz, K-Rod, Reyes, Jenks

Meche shouldn't be considered a pity pick for the Royals, he absolutely deserves the spot. Garland gets no love for the season he is having in the middle of the disaster that is called the 2007 White Sox. Verlander will probably take that spot since one of the White Sox offensive names will find a spot.

NL - Peavy, Penny, Young, Lowe, Sheets, Snell, Webb, Hamels
Saito, Valverde, Isringhausen, Fuentes

Isringhausen probably won't make it since Pujols will get the Cards' bid but its too bad. He has been lights out so far this year. Put Cordero in his place. It will be a shame if Snell doesn't get the Pirate's spot although its not like Bay is a horrible choice. Hudson should be there in his place if Snell doesn't make it.

Because pitchers are picked the way it should be, by people who actually look at what that person is doing this year and not just there name and who they play for ;D


The managers can do just as bad of a job and have shown just as much homerism for their own players in the past as the fans do.

American League
Starter: Dan Haren
SP: Beckett, J. Santana, Lackey, Sabathia, Verlander, Bedard, Meche
RP: Putz, Papelbon, F. Rodriguez, Reyes

National League
Starter: Jake Peavy
SP: Hamels, Penny, C. Young, Smoltz, Maine, Snell, Sheets
RP: F. Cordero, Saito, Isringhausen, Hoffman


I have a feeling Shields will get snubbed. I want him there I just don't think he'll get it. Bedard will make it because noone else on his team will. So it comes down to Sabathia or Shields and I think that C.C's seniority will give him the nod. I don't think Rich Hill will make it, so it came down to Sheets or Webb. I think Sheets gets the nod because being in the Central, LaRussa sees him more than he does Webb. I also wanted to get Fuentes on there somehow but I can't see him beating out the veteran Hoffman.

That's true. Bedard will knock Shields out unless Tejada gets in. Leyland will give Guillen the nod probably, and I doubt they add another SS. It's not like that 8th starter will pitch anyway though. The nice thing is there shouldn't be any undeserving players. Bedard, Meche, Snell and Jenks all have had good years and even though there might be some pitchers who are a little better I have no problem with them being there.

Yeah nothing like last year's Mark Redman. :P
