One very interesting tidbit...

If you had told me there would be two Houston players on the All Star Roster at the beginning of the season, everyone would have assumed Berkman and Lee.

Instead it's Tejada and Pence, while Berkman and Lee are no where to be found.

Besides the fan vote, are there any other players to be named. I haven't paid much attention in the past, but it seems short-sighted to me that there's only two catchers on each roster. I'd think that there would be 3 catchers named to each team, with the 3rd catcher recognizing that he would only get to play in an emergency. I would assume that the starters won't play over 5-6 innings; what happens if the replacement catcher is injured and can't continue? Can the starting catcher re-enter the game in a situation like that?

The NL roster only has FOUR healthy OFs on it. That along with the lack of catching for both teams seems a little insane to me. Why do fans vote for players who aren't even playing right now?! *shakes head* :eek:

This was really too bad. I would have laughed so hard if that campaign had worked.

On another note, congrats to Tim Wakefield on his first ASG at age 42. The numbers weren't really there (aside from wins) and I guess Sherrill might have been a more logical pick on those grounds, but since when do All-Star rosters have to make any sense? It's an exhibition game. He seems like a real nice guy and from the comments I read, he is over the moon about being picked and really wanted to go, so you can't help but be happy for the guy.

Also, Yadier Molina is so offensively inferior to Brian McCann that he can't even see him from where he's standing.
