- The All-Star Festivities will begin with the Home Run Derby. The event is being highlighted by Red Sox David Ortiz attempting to call his shot ala the Babe.
- Right now the best starting pitcher in the AL has arguably been Red Sox Daisuke Matsuzaka who sports a 8-0 record and a 2.53 era.
- Based on the current voting totals the Al lineup would consist of 5 other Red Sox players - Ortiz, Manny, Youkilis, Pedoria and Varitek
- The AL club is being Managed by Red Sox Manager Terry Francona
- At least one other Sox will make the team - Papelbon, Okajima is a long shot too.
So to celebrate The House That Ruth Built we will be overrun by Red Sox. Also, with Jorge out we loose one possible All-Star and are left with Arod, Jeter, Mo and Possibly Wang on the team.
So what do we do? Vote, Vote, and Vote again. Cano is second to Pedoria so he could slip in bad season and all, at first base go heavy on Justin Mourneau, catcher Joe Mauer is our man, and at DH Hideki is 2nd behind Ortiz. I don't typically care about the All-Star game but I couldn't stomach seeing an all red display in the Bronx. So get the word out and rock the vote!
