A bunch of snubs, but all is right with the world now that the average fan realizes how awesome Russell Martin is. :-D

How about......

Orlando Cabrera (LAA)


Easily a better year than Michael Young.....but becasue of the rule where every team must have a rep..... Orlando Cabrera gets screwed.


Avg HR RBI Runs SB
.342 5 48 53 9


Those are outfielder type numbers from a great defensive shortstop on arguably the best team in baseball (top 3 team for sure)

If any pitcher on the Jays roster deserves to go to the AS game, it has to be Shaun Marcum.

Also, how in the world is Freddy Sanchez on this roster for Pittsburgh, but not Ian Snell? Or, for that matter, how does Brian '4 Straight Blown Saves' Fuentes make the cut when Matt Holliday is already on the roster?

Ryan Howard, Brandon Phillips & Edgar Renteria.

I know the fan voting is (deservedly) knocked every year, but the NL starters this year are solid. Russell Martin & Prince Fielder starting is huge, because they aren't exactly household names.

The NL reserves and pitchers, on the other hand, are atrocious. What are they thinking with all those closers?? Fuentes?? WTF??

They could have put in Gorzellany as a starter for the Pirates selection. He deserved anyway. That would have freed up another roster spot for Rollins, the biggest snub IMO.

I love Aaron Rowand as an aggressive player, but no way he deserves to be in over Eric Byrnes.

People screwed:
Swisher , Snell/Gorzelanny as Pittsburgh reps , Ryan Howard :-° , Glaus , Halladay

People who should not be there:
I-Rod/Polanco/ %-6 Dmitri Young being there is an abomination - shows who selected him has mild retardation %-6 /Freddy Sanchez/Aaron Rowand/Gil Meche.

Howard and Snell are not even on the online voting? My god!

Young, Maine and Snell should all be there for the NL. Valverde? Fuentes? Freddy Sanchez??! (for Pirates rep instead of Snell?)

And it's not as big of an issue as those two, but Hamels is what... 40th in the MLB in ERA?

gagne should have been the rangers rep.

i love MY but he didnt deserve it. while gagne doesnt have the saves or innings pitched to really deserve it either, he has at leastl egitiamtely performed at an all star calibur level while in there and would be an asset on the team.

he would have still bumped someone who is perhaps more deserving (although with higher ERAs than his 1.1), but not by nearly as much.

come on, who doesnt want to see gagne pitch an inning?
