Great news for Longo/Beltre owners. Now they can rest their injuries and come back strong in the 2nd half.

Most shocking include here has got to be Torii Hunter. Guess that's the benefit of your manager picking the team. Josh Donaldson got ripped off there.

Also a little surprised Sal Perez made it over Carlos Santana

Just posted this basically in the Josh Donaldson thread. My official first snubbed guy btw.

But this part was about the last player to be voted in poll for both leagues. Sorry to repeat but who is gonna read the Donaldson thread compared to this one.

Five relief pitchers, AL? Really? That's the manager's job. You put up 5 names to get even the most casual fan excited because no one but hard core and homers for a team will vote in the relief pitchers poll. Heck I'm a Red Sox fan and like Ueharra plenty but I can't be bothered to vote in a stupid relief pitchers poll.

Meanwhile the National League put up 5 names that will cause people to rush to vote including you-know-who. Way to screw it up, American League.

In other news, as a fan of an AL team who has a chance to make it to the World Series this year I doubt that my team or any AL team that gets there will have home field advantage. NL looks stacked this year. Even the players in their last player poll all deserve to be there but ... let Puigmania ensue! This all star game is all about the National League this season. (Maybe the AL wins the HR Derby but that is it ... whoopee not).

Zobrist making it instead of Josh Donaldson is pretty bad. But it's the All-Star game, it's almost impossible for me to care at all about it.

But I actually like it when guys on my fantasy squads don't make the ASG. I'd rather have them rest than spend three days doing all of the All-Star festivities. Recharge the batteries for the second half.

The AL starting 8 is plenty good enough to win the game.

Echoing what others have said, Donaldson has to be one of the biggest snubs. He even hit another dinger today. Zobrist? Really?

Good to see the young guys on there like Corbin, Fernandez, and Locke. Well deserved.

Anyway, it'll be fun to see Harvey vs. Scherzer, assuming those are the starters, and they should be.

My only hope is that the AL wins by three runs or less, not for home field advantage or anything, but I would love to see Mariano Rivera get the save in his final ASG.

I would have taken any of these guys as an AL OF reserve over Hunter without a second thought. And that doesnt even count guys at other positions who deserved it over him. Oh well, Leyland can do what he wants to, since he's the boss here.

Mark Trumbo

Raul Ibanez

Nate McLouth
Coco Crisp

The AL starting 8 is plenty good enough to win the game.

But it's the all star game and the starting eight won't be the finishing eight and the finsihing eight look pretty bad by comparison. How does a DP combo of Peralta and Zobrist grab you with Torri Hunter "racing' around the outfield to back up a struggling all season Verlander. Hmmm, 3 of those 4 guys are Tigers. Probably just a coincidence, right.

Leyland was terrible in his picks. To skip not only Donaldson but Longo and Beltre (who has been wicked hot lately) is silly.

Meanwhile the National League acknowledged that there are players who entered the league in the last few year who are deserving. Machado is the only player like that on the AL squad outside the "officially needed" Houston represenative, Castro.

Also note the NL has a late innings base stealer in Everth Cabrera. (And maybe Puig if the mania hopefully floods the last player poll). The AL reserves are basically flat-footed creatures. Even Zobrist hasn't been stealing this season. If not Ells then someone with speed like McLouth would have been way better for an extra OF then Torii Hunter. Better for OF defense as well.

Do they have to be on the squad to be in the HR Derby? If so there goes my dream of Trumbo getting a chance.

That's just it. The NL will throw Harvey and Kershaw at the AL starters which helps neutralize the starting power leaving it to the two benches later in the game. Enter Puig and the rest is history. If the Tigers make it to the WS this year they will have only their stone age manager and his loopy selections to blame for not having home field advantage.
