We need to vote Paulie in then he can just jack Giradi in the face during the game.

Stupid, every year we complain, every year there is bad selections. NO RIOS????? Batting over 300 more than 20 steals and more than 10 homeruns, not to mention his deffensive ability!!!! Talk about All around player, but no instead we have big papi out there!

Konerko was in the tough spot of playing a loaded position, but Ortiz over him is just bull****. You can tell Girardi's picks because he is very AL EAST heavy. First response is bull****, but when it was Ozzie, he took like half the Sox roster, so all manager's make mistakes. In the end who cares, I would rather let Konerko rest his old ass and be ready for the 2nd half.

Is it news to you that the All-Star selection is a popularity contest and is heavily biased? It has been happening for years.

The one player from each team rule really demonstrating how much bull**** it is this year. Chris Young and Michael Bourn get in because they play for two of the bottom 5 teams in baseball. Fausto Carmona and Ty Wigginton have no business being there either. If you're going to have the All-Star game decide home field advantage in the world series, at least have the best players in it.

I honestly could care less for the All-Star game.

1) Let's pack our stadium more so there are more people there to stuff the ballots. Do the same online.
2) Let's play better next time in April and May so that the league takes notice.

No. 2 does not apply to Rios or Pauly. If Girardi can't see that they are deserving, then he does not deserve the right to make the selections. I expect fans to not know, not professionals who are obligated to know.

Girardi has control of about 3-4 roster spots.

The players vote a majority of the reserves.

When the Sox sucked for a good portion of the 1st hal, I don't think too many players/coaches/ Girardi took notice of how good Rios and Konerko were playing.

What ass kicking were they doing at 8-10 games under .500?


Sorry, but NL teams couldn't vote for AL players. NL is about the only ass kicking we have done this year.

When teams take charge and get off to 10-15 games over .500, trust me, the entire league takes notice of what is going on.

It's odd also because it's not like Infante was chosen since ATL didn't have any other representatives. They already had Prado and McCann on the team. Prado's even going to start since Utley is hurt at 2nd base.

Rios and Konerko have been kicking ass all year. The rest of their teammates have not. I will not hold it against you for not making that distinction (though the fact that you find it humorous is odd), but since the professionals are obligated to distinguish such, I will hold them responsible for not doing so.

I just can't get over Omar Infante getting picked for the NL.

Matt Thornton getting picked is with precedent, as set-up guys have been picked before, but a total bench player? ***?

Ty Wigginton and Jose Bautista could be ridiculed too in the AL, but at least they are in the line up almost everyday, even though they are equally undeserving.

The ASG pick process is getting worse and worse every year.
