Estaban Loaiza to start All-Star Game!!!

So congrats to a White Sox pitcher for earning this honor. For all the heartache we've all gone through this first half of the season, it's nice to know we have the All-Star starting pitcher!!!

Way to go, Estaban!!!

Good for him. The man r00lz. I bought a Loaiza All-Star Jersey T-Shirt at Fanfest so I guess I will wear it at the game to root him on!

Congrats to E-LO !!! Nice Job. What a great story hes
been in Chicago this year, too bad hes been overshadowed
by stories of Darren Jr, Corking, Cheating, Bigotry and Cub Wins steroids, cub losses etc etc this year.
I hope ELO doesnt get UPSTAGED by Dusty if he names WOOD to start for the NL squad.

Fantastic!

I was convinced that Halladay had it wrapped up (he's very deserving as well), but it's nice that they gave it to the guy with the lowest ERA (as opposed to the guy with more run support).

Perhaps there is some justice in this world...

Considering Esteban's record should probably be something like 15-3, and that the game is taking place at the Cell, I think I can safely say justice has been served.

Congrats to ELo on this honor.

After Frank getting screwed 3 different times out of being picked an All Star and having no Sox players in the HR derby in our own park...

Finally, something at this all star game goes right for our team. Congratulations Esteban. You are deserving of starting this game. I hope he strikes out the side in the 1st inning to send the White Sox faithful into a frenzy.

Now watch the game get rained out...

Seriously, though, congrats E-Lo! If only ALL the Sox played the first half with E-Lo's pride, passion and yes, FOCUS!

Yeah, I'm even talking to you, Mags. You're in the AL, kid. You should have Pujols-like stats, if not better.

I was a little worried that those two 1-0 losses would hurt his chances but I was wrong. Thank God something finally goes our way for once.

I hate to beat the dead horse that is my dislike of Jay Mariotti, but in this instance I can't help it. I remember that from the
time Mark Prior threw his first pitch of the season Mariotti was
campaigning for him to start the All-Star game by dropping
hints in his column. He even went so far to say that it would
"chap the butts" of Sox fans to see Prior, a Cub, starting an
All-Star game at the Cell. And now, instead, we have a White
Sox pitcher starting the game. After Mariotti's stumping for
Prior and his idiotic "chap the butts" statement, all I have to
say is "delicious."
