All-Star Rosters

NL
http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/allsta...ory?id=6732659

AL
http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/allsta...ory?id=6732660

Really CC didnt get a spot? I get that he is pitching the Sunday before so he wouldnt be able to play anyways..But WTF?

Russell Martin and Matt Weinters? Why both? Couldnt give a spot to Zorbist or Peralta? Also sucks for Both Alex Gordan and Andrew McCutchen really thought the 2 would get in...Also it weird to see a guy that is 2nd in HR/RBI in the AL but not make the Allstar team but i get it he is only hitting 240. and Cabrera deserves it more

Re: All-Star Rosters

Why is Russell Martin an all-star? The well-deserving Alex Avila passing him in fan voting should have been the end of that.

Also confused by Carlos Quentin over Konerko for the White Sox representative. Matt Joyce is another head-scratcher. He was hot to start the year, but has a sub .235 OBP since the end of May. Just a bad choice.

Re: All-Star Rosters

Paul Konerko not being put on the all-star team is a ****ing miscarriage of justice... **** that noise. Konerko is perennially underrated.

Re: All-Star Rosters

Bruce Bochy is a homer. 4 pitchers from that team & they aren't even the best pitching team in the league.

Re: All-Star Rosters

The big head-scratcher is the AL taking two backup catchers. Russell Martin and Matt Wieters? I know you need one of them and I know the Orioles need a representative. I would've taken Wieters and put Peralta in the game over Martin. Sabathia should've been in too. Why is Brandon League on the team when the Mariners already have a representative? Jose Valverde? Ugh.

On the flip side, I love the NL having two very deserving middle relievers in Clippard and Venters.
