All Star Rosters were announced today.  In case you missed them here is the link...

http://mlb.mlb.com/n...391804&c_id=mlb

So what do you think?  Who is there that shouldn't be?  Who got snubbed?  Who has some All-Stars on their roster??

From someone who owns him, no way Ben Zobrist is an All-Star.

O and Puig is a vote in option.  Whose ready to see Papelbon's head explode.

Home run derby for next Monday consists of David Wright, Bryce Harper, Carlos Gonalez and Michael Cuddyer from the NL and the AL is Robinson Cano, Chris Davis, Prince Fielder and the 4th player is TBD. I'm pretty excited to see Harper and Davis show off some of their raw power.

I'm hoping the empty spot is Ken Griffey Jr, you know, just for old times sake. He was the man when I was growing up. Always been a huge fan. I know it won't happen but it would be cool to see.

The 4th player should either be Miggy or Bautista.
You're television incarnate, Diana: Indifferent to suffering; insensitive to joy. All of life is reduced to the common rubble of banality. War, murder, death are all the same to you as bottles of beer. And the daily business of life is a corrupt comedy. You even shatter the sensations of time and space into split seconds and instant replays. You're madness, Diana. Virulent madness. And everything you touch dies with you. But not me. Not as long as I can feel pleasure, and pain... and love.

He has some impressive power. Have you seen those under armour commercials?! Also, doubt anyone can get him to not participate in it.

Cano asked Miggy, but settle for Cespedes. Miggy didnt want to on account of his back.

Wright picked Harper because that fans wanted to see Harper in the contest. I'm petty sure that's why Harper is participating. MLB did a interview with Wright last night discussing his selections.

I own both as well.

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon

Between Buck's tedious voice and Berman's odd commentating style.. I'm not sure which is worse..
