Cliff Politte or Dustin Hermanson should be All Stars. I guess Terry doesn't want to win.

In all honesty, I think the entire team should represent the AL, but that's not going to happen.

Podz has 40 steals for the best team in baseball and can't get in? 3 All Stars for the best team in baseball. That's the absolute minimum they could give us. Oh well, I want our team to be well rested when they come to play the 2nd Half.

Sox of White
07-03-2005, 07:20 PM
Dustin and Cliff got the shaft hardcore. They totally deserve to be there. And 40 steals before the break? Not an All-Star? Hopefully one of these three guys will be in the final vote.

On a related note, is anyone else annoyed by Scott Rolen being there? Obviously, he has the talent to make the team, but he hasn't played enough to really deserve a spot. I know he was voted in, but I think in instaces like this, a change should be made.

Ridiculous.3.67 with 22 saves... ne who when the red sox manager was on the score, he said after the starters get picked by fans, then every player votes for players. he is left to pick like 2 position players and 4 pitchers. and he still has to fill every team. so its not all his fault for pods not getting in. he still deserves it tho.

PK doesn't deserve it, at least not for his bat. He's far too inconsistent at the plate and his hitting will be an issue and a liability in the playoffs. Hopefully Frank can cover his ass.

Podsednik is one of five candidates in the annual 'FINAL VOTE' in the AL,but dont hold your breath on him getting in since Derek Jeter and last year's runnaway winner Hideki Matsui are in it again. The others are Torii Hunter and Carl Crawford. Matsui will again get the votes from Japan which is what got him in last year. Jeter will give him a run for his money. Nobody outside of Chicago knows what Podsednik has done and his AVG will hurt him.

I know the NL & AL rosters,but cant post them untill 7pm Chicago time either here or on my site which it almost is at the time of THIS posting.

this whole all star thing is just weird. have the fans pick players to start an exhibition game which factors into the biggest games of the year. does anyone know if there is a certain length they have to keep going with this all star game means world series home field thing? same thing for fan voting. or could they change it whenever.

07-03-2005, 07:44 PM
Finally we get someone who might not deserve it. Can't complain, got exactly what I hoped for. Buehrle and Garland are completely obvious and I felt we deserved some recognition by getting the nod with a hitter even if it was questionable.

But I still love how the GREATEST PLAYER OF ALL TIME was not voted on to the team initially. He probably will get the final vote, but I'll still enjoy my brief time before that vote knowing he is not on the team yet.

Hopefully with two NYY players, NYY fans will split the vote, similar to what happened last year when both Konerko and Thomas were in the final man vote.

We have to remember that the players voted PK in. Some may think he did not deserve to make it, but it was nice to see him getting some respect from his fellow players. Expect Buehrle and Garland to probably get an inning apiece pitching with Roy H. getting 2.

Rolen getting in is a joke. Harold Reynolds made a good point on BBTN when he said that you should have to play a certain amount of games to go.

No. There were many years the Sox did not have an all-star on their roster. Tough cookies. If we don't diserve it, we don't diserve it.

Especially since this goofy idea of it determining home field for the WS.

The Sox have bigger fish to fry, and that doesn't include the All Farce Game.

The sox have Konerko, Buehrle, and Garland going to detroit for the All Star game. Hermenson has 19 saves in 20 opps and an ERA of 1.44 and didn't make it as a releif pitcher. Whats worse is three other Relief pitchers with worse numbers than Hermy made the team; Baez (13 sv, 2.83 era), BJ Ryan (18 sv, 1.67 era), Wickman (22 sv, 2.61 era). Also Joe Nathan made it, granted he has 22 saves, but a bloated era at 3.76. OUCH I cant beleive all those guys are deemed more valuable and deserving than Hermenson whose #'s are way better.

Teixeira, Ortiz and Sweeney should be the only 1st baseman who make it. I'm sorry but a guy hitting .243 and .236 RISP isn't an all star. It's not like he makes up for his bat in the field either.

It's not like he makes up for his bat in the field either.Ortiz is a DH full time and that's what he was on the ballot. You want 3 1B so take Sweeney and Teixeira and who else is deserving. Well Konerko has better stats than anyone at 1B in the AL not named Sweeney and Teixeira.

Hey, it makes up for last season when Konerko should have been there but wasn't. Besides, it's not like the fans voted him in or he was chosen because we needed a representative. Konerko was voted in by his peers. He became an All-Star because the players decided that he deserved to be one.

I'd like to thanks the fans for getting it right in the AL. Varitek, Teixeira, Roberts, Tejada, Arod, and Ortiz are all the most deserving at their positions. In the OF, Manny, Damon and Vlad is pretty much correct as well. Sheffield is about the only other player that has a case to start, but it's hard to say that any of the three outfielders shouldn't be starting over Sheffield.

Congrats to Buehrle, Garland and Konerko. They're all very deserving. :gulp:

Hasn't Palmeiro reached a point where he should be on the team anyway, like Ripken did. Look at his career numbers. He's only a few hits shy of 3000. He could quite possibly hit 600 HR's. Not too shabby, and numbers Konerko will never see.

So should Sham-ME be on the team too? How about Griffey? Should Bonds be on the team even though he can't play? Hell, we can just make it a team based on career numbers and forget about the current year. All these good young players like Teixeira, Tejada, Abreu, etc. can give way to Palmeiro, Griffey, Bagwell, etc. Maybe we can find a spot for Larry Walker, too. He's going to retire after this year. What better way to honor him than make him an All-Star one more time. Miguel Cabrera, you're off the team. Sorry. We need room for Larry Walker to honor his great years in the 90s.
