All star teams

Postby thedude » Sun Jul 04, 2010 1:06 pm

No surprise (we'll be hearing that a lot) - Joe Mauer (catcher) and Justin Morneau (first base) of the Twins.
Starry night

Robinson Cano of the Yankees at second for the AL.

Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria at third.

Stunner - Derek Jeter at short. Who could have seen that coming, huh?

Ichiro Suzuki in the outfield, along with Josh Hamilton of Texas and Carl Crawford of Tampa Bay.

And it's Vlad Guerrero of Texas at AL DH.

Now for the NL.

Yadier Molina of St. Louis gets the nod at catcher.

Albert Pujols of the Cards at first.

Philadelphia's Chase Utley voted in as the starter, but he's hurt. Martin Prado of the Braves will step in.

David Wright of the Mets at third.

Shortstop? Hanley Ramirez of the Marlins.

In the outfield, it's Ryan Braun of the Brewers, Atlanta's Jason Heyward (who's hurt and may not play) and Andre Ethier of the Dodgers.

Time for pitchers:

Roy Halladay (Phillies)

Josh Johnson (Marlins)

Tim Lincecum (Giants)

Tim Hudson (Braves)

Jonathan Broxton (Dodgers)

Arthur Rhodes (Reds)

Adam Wainwright (Cards)

Chris Carpenter (Cards)

Brian Wilson (Giants)

Evan Meek (Pirates)

Ubaldo Jimenez (Rockies)

Matt Capps (Nationals)

Yovani Gallardo (Brewers)

Obviously, no Stephen Strasburg.

NL reserves

Chris Young (D0backs)

Omar Infante (Braves)

Brian McCann (Braves)

Martin Prado (Braves)

Marlon Byrd (Cubs)

Brandon Phillips (Reds)

Scott Rolen (Reds)

Michael Bourn (Astros)

Corey Hart (Brewers)

Ryan Howard (Phillies)

Matt Holliday (Cardinals)

Adrian Gonzalez (Padres)

Coming up, AL pitchers and reserves.

CC Sabathia (Yankees)

Fausto Carmona (Indians)

David Price (Rays)

Neftali Feliz (Rangers)

Phil Hughes (Yankees)

Mariano Rivera (Yankees)

Jon Lester (Red Sox)

Matt Thornton (White Sox)

Jose Valverde (Tigers)

Cliff Lee (Mariners)

Trevor Cahill (A's)

Joakim Sori (Royals)

AL reserves:

Ty Wigginton (O's)

David Ortiz (Red Sox) (Wow, who could have seen this in April?)

Miguel Cabrera (Tigers)

Torii Hunter (Angels) (the only All-Star from the home team)

Alex Rodriguez (Yankees)

Elvis Andrus (Rangers)

Ian Kinsler (Rangers) (replacing Boston's Dustin Pedroia)

Jose Bautista (Blue Jays)

John Buck (Blue Jays) (replacing Boston's Victor Martinez)

Vernon Wells (Blue Jays)

That's all the selections for now. The 34th player on each team will be selected by fans. For the AL, it'll be Paul Konerko of the White Sox, Nick Swisher of the Yankees, Delmon Young of the Twins, Michael Young of the Rangers or Kevin Youkilis of the Rd Sox.

In the NL, it'll come down to Heath Bell of the Padres, Carlos Gonzalez of the Rockies, Joey

the padres have been in first place all year long, and have one all star. they have the best pitching staff in the game, and not one of them was worthy. soo figures.

Overall looks OK. Omar Infante seems a curious choice. I get that he can play multiple positions and is hitting .311, but it's a very hollow .311 and he only has some 170 PA or so. It's especially curious when guys like Votto and Zimmerman didn't make it. And it's not like he's the "token" Brave...they already have McCann, Prado, Heyward, and Hudson. Michael Bourn being an all star is also pretty sad, but the stacked NL starting pitching made it tough on Oswalt to make it.

Tough final vote choice in the NL...all very legitimate candidates...but Votto's gotta be the choice I think.

Particularly, Mat Latos deserved strong consideration. Like Oswalt, he was another victim of a stacked NL pitching staff, starting pitching-wise.

I can't understand Carmona and Thornton over Choo and Rios. Was the AL light on pitching? Also, I think Howard over Votto was a bad decision although not surprising with Manuel picking the reserves. CarGo would be a better than usual final vote winner but Votto's even better.

Carmona and Thornton over Liriano and King Felix. %-6

Charlie Manuel should be checked to see if he is on drugs. Omar Infante? WTF! how and the hell can Infante be an ALL STAR when he isnt even a regular starter on his own team?! Infante on the team is a joke!

i really really hate the last vote in. its so ridiculous! there will be multiple players that wont make it because someone else gets the last vote in.

Magglio Ordonez deserves to be in there. .310 AVG, 46 R, 10 HR, 50 RBI. not even nominated for the final vote in.

I'm glad that Strasberg did not get in. he doesnt deserve to be there this season.

I can understand the likes of Carmona/Thornton because you have to have one player from every team.

they should expand the rosters. even if you have multiple players that don't get into the game, it would be worthy of them just to be selected.

That is definitely a "WOW" decision.

So much blame to go around. Between the fans, players, and managers, I'm not even sure who did worst this year.
