Looks like they're pretty even on that 1st one (2002) :D:

What is Thome's line?

BTW, I can't stand Thome.

I can't see how Thome is a lock? First of all Cleveland should only get 2 All-Stars at most. And those should be Vizquel and Colon. It will be a terrible injustice if Thome makes the team.

It is surely true that Sweeney will make it as the only KC rep, as he should be. Will it screw PK? I think Thome would be screwing him more. Giambi is in, and likely Delgado too, so I would hope Paulie gets the fourth slot behind Sweeney.

I have a big rant about the All-Stars coming when I get time to write it.

Personally I agree with the late Billy Martin, that every team should NOT be represented.

That being said, who cares? The All Star farce is a popularity contest anyway. I haven't watched it since they decided to give the fans the vote and then let them vote over and over again.

The Sox (and their fans) have bigger problems that how many team members get to play in a meaningless exhibition game.

Joe Randa for KC is a possibility. He has pretty good numbers
7 hrs 42 rbi's and hes hitting 295. So maybe sweeney ins't a lock.

I would think that Beltran (.263, 11 HR, 42 RBIs, 18 SBs) and Roberto Hernandez (10 of 11 in save opportunities, 3.06 ERA, 1.25 WHIP) are also possible candidates.

The fact is, making the All-Star team as a first baseman in the AL is tough. Giambi, Palmiero, Delgado, Thome, Sweeny, Konerko, and Olerud are all very good players. I'd like to see PK make it, just because he deserves some recognition -- however, part of me hopes he gets snubbed, takes it pesonally, and exacts his revenge upon the baseball for the remainder of the year to prove Torre wrong.

Just kind of like what Big Frank did in 2000 finishing 2nd in MVP voting.

Exactly - Frank got jobbed in the MVP voting too, if you ask me (of course, I am a little bit biased).

All right! We all know that we keep on getting snubbed of All Star invites because of the pitaful "every team must have a representative" rule...So, let's just get it out of our system. The best way to do that is to scream something that we scream at ISU basketball games many times when we didn't like a call...Scream with me...

NUTS AND BOLTS, NUTS AND BOLTS! WE...GOT...SCREWED!!!
