Who do you think will be the vote in options for the all star game for the NL and AL. (guys who get snubbed but the fans vote in the last player)

I think some NL guys will Derrek Lee, Adrian Gonzalez

I think an AL guy will be Rios.

I think Torii Hunter might get snubbed. There will be a couple good pitchers on the AL fans ballot as well.

We should have a much better idea of things after the selection show airs on TBS (4:00pm)...

I'm pretty excited to watch, actually. I doubt that Cal Ripken and Tony Gwynn will have the same dynamic with host Ernie Johnson that Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith do on "Inside the NBA", but it'll be interesting to see... ;-D

Two big notables left off of the AL starters and reserves are Gary Sheffield and Kevin Youkilis.

I wonder if he told Leyland he'd wanted the time off.

Manny is sitting All-Star Game out so Shef might be added as a replacement.

Link...? I haven't seen this reported anywhere. As a matter of fact, in a Boston Herald article from this morning, David Ortiz stated that he felt Manny would attend/participate in the All-Star festivities, if selected...
“Hopefully...I think he will.”
