    Verlander didn't make it? Should he have made it?

    Any other surprise omissions, inclusions?

    As an avowed Twins looser fangirl, I am disgusted that Ivan Rodriguez was named AL starting catcher over Joe Mauer! :mad:

    But for all the homerheads, Dunn has 26 dingers, roundtrippers, 4-baggers home runs.

    Dunn on the all-star team?

    Are you kidding?

    I'll repeat the two that got me:

    1. Nomar, #2 hitter in the NL, left off.

    2. Chris Young, as unhittable as anyone in baseball in the first half, left off.

    Mark Redman. Hell yes.

    Chris Young hasn't been media-driven.

    Fans in L.A. are blasé. Nomar isn't glitzy in L.A. like he was gritty in Boston. Interesting phenomenon.

    I sort of liked the fans' acumen in the NL outfield starters ... until I saw Bay's last month (.222).

    I'm told Pittsburgh made a big push for the fans to vote him in.

    Mauer not starting is ignorant and is #1 followed by your 2.

    BTW They ought to play the All Star games with a DH every year. Having to list David Ortiz as a 1B is laughable.

    Even more laughable is the Chisox having two listed reserve first basemen (Konerko, Thome).
