So, here is the question: who will our all-stars be?
My guess is Livan and Cordero (Chad, not Wil :-p ) definitely. But who else? Anyone?
The only potential one would be Nick Johnson of course. But I fear Nick will be towards the top of the snub list. Derrick Lee and Albert Pujols are absolute locks. Assume there is a third player and you probably give the edge to Carlos Delgado. There is also the potential of a pick going to a team that needs a player, like Milwaukee's Lyle Overbay (although SuperNova thinks Carlos Lee is getting in) and Colorado's Todd Helton now that Barmes is injured (although I think Preston Wilson gets that pick--SuperNova mentioned the possibility of a guy like Brian Fuentes, who I think would instantly go to the top of any argument of worst all-star ever: a reliever with a 1-3 record, 2.91 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and only 7 saves).
Anyway, I hate to say it, but our debateable mid-season MVP may be taking a much needed rest in a couple of weeks.
p.s. Nice win today, and great job by Hector getting out of that HUGE jam.
