    • With the trading deadline approaching (and NBA free agency starting) I think everyone should take a look at this article about anonymous sources.

        I would say Mike Pelfrey deserves to be there also.

        Although, everyone that you've mentioned deserve it.

        • I would like for Meek to get in, I just don't see it. It's either Meek or Cutch going. I hope and pray for both, but I guess we'll see in the next couple of days.

          • There is no way that Pittsburgh will get 2 representatives in the ASG with their record as it is. It will be either Meek or Crutch. Prob Crutch at this point.

            • I think Marmol's earned a spot as a reliever.

              • I've never really cared about the All Star Game. I guess I just don't trust fans to vote for the proper players. This always puts the managers in the tough spot of having to snub deserving players in favor of must takes. It always bothered me that players got voted in on reputation. I know this isn't a new thing or something that is isolated to MLB, but it is a little difficult to enjoy a product that is decided by bandwagon fans.

                For instance, I'm a Phillies fan, but I can tell you that Jimmy Rollins doesn't deserve to be an all star based on his 2010. However, he is in a tight race with Hanley. That's ridic. Additionally, Matt Holliday is probably the best OF in the NL, but he's 5th in voting. That kind of stuff pisses me off...

                • Matt Holliday is absolutely not the best outfielder in the NL.

                  • I don't even think Holliday has been the best OF on his own team this year.

                      One of the better wOBAs in the league with the highest WAR, although his UZR might be a bit funky.

                      • Aaron Harang topping out at 89mph on his fastball today.
                        He has kept the top half of the Phillies line up to 3-12 with a walk.
                        Yet gets lazy with the bottom of the line up (like usual) and gives up a 3 run HR.

                        • I still don't trust UZR all that much.

                          • As you shouldn't. Defensive metrics are crap. UZR just happens to be the best of the crap.

                              How dare you argue against Sabrmetrics!!!

                              Just kidding. I agree.

                              • I love a lot of the SABR stats and they definitely all have their place to help understand the game better but the more I see of UZR the more I think it's garbage.
