Looks like Soriano will not play in the All star game now. Damn, I was hoping he would play and add to that awful OF defense.

Has Big Papi taken himself out of the game yet? If Dye doesn't win the vote, he would be a logical replacement (notwithstanding the fact that he doesn't "play" DH).

I think Milton Bradley has already been named the DH replacement.

I believe I read that Milton Bradley is taking Ortiz's place on the roster.

Edit: Beaten to it!

That has already played out. Milton Bradley has been chosen to be the DH.

Is Milton Bradley taking Ortiz's spot at DH for the All-Star game? Dye would be a nice replacement if not.

I suspect they'll officially annouce injury replacements once the final vote is complete.

Terry announced that on the actual All Star Selection Show.

So who wants to bet that Manny will take himself out of the game again?

I could be wrong here
but

It was my understanding Papi still has to be replaced on the roster, and that Bradley was simply replacing him in the starting lineup

Holliday is replacing Soriano in the starting lineup. They are waiting until after the final vote for a roster replacement.

According to the roster posted on ESPN.com, Bradley is not an injury replacement for Ortiz. He's just replacing Ortiz in the starting lineup.

Hopefully Francona will recognize the strong first half JD has had, assuming he doesn't come from behind and beat Longoria in the Final Vote.
