No. These are the starters named to the NL All Star team:

RA Dickey
Matt Cain
Gio Gonzalez
Cole Hamels
Clayton Kershaw
Lance Lynn
Wade Miley
Stephen Strausberg

Grienke, Cueto and McDonald are the obvious snubs that should be there over Lance Lynn (an obvious homer pick by La Russa). Still, I'd put Santana (only 6 wins but 2.76 ERA and 98 innings), Madison Bumgarner (10 wins, 2.85 ERA, 110 innings), Ryan Vogelsong (7 wins, 2.26 ERA, 103 innings) all over Burnett (9 wins, 3.31 ERA, 81 innings).

It might help to understand how the process works. Lynn was voted in by the players. And in a bit of fairness to them, they started their voting when Lynn was 10-2 with a 2.42 ERA, prior to him getting beaten up a bit in his last couple of starts.

http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/blog/jon-heyman/19459665/dodgers-pull-plug-on-lee-deal-after-waiting-two-days-for-his-approval

The wait for Carlos Lee's approval had gone on long enough, so the Dodgers finally pulled the plug on the deal that would have sent the veteran slugger west to Los Angeles.

Sources say the Dodgers called off the deal earlier on Sunday. They were to send pitching prospect Garrett Gould to Houston for Lee in an attempt to bolster their offense, which has badly missed superstar Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier.

The deal was made Friday, and Lee was saying he was having trouble deciding. Perhaps the Dodgers took that as a hint. Lee is hitting .290 with five home runs, so he isn't exactly having a big power year, anyway.

The Dodgers are expected to continue to seek ways to upgrade their offense. First base and third base are two spots where they could use help.

There is no indication they have real interest in the Cubs' Alfonso Soriano, who is on the block. Not many great offensive options are available, but the Cubs have a few, including All-Star Bryan LaHair.

The Dodgers, major players with their new ownership team, are also expected to try to add a starting pitcher, and Ryan Dempster is a candidate for them once he comes off the disabled list.

The Astros have been trying to trade Lee since the winter but are hampered by his 14-team no-trade list which includes mostly major-market teams. He originally signed with the Astros partly because he has a cattle ranch near Houston, and has shown no desire to leave. He opted for the Astros over the Giants despite San Francisco offering more than the $100-million, six-year deal he signed in Houston. So he has never shown a great desire to play on the West Coast.

The Astros are telling teams they are willing to trade any of their players, though they'd have to be bowled over to consider trading emerging shortstop Jed Lowrie, who is close to untouchable.

http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/story/19459402/yankees-acquire-reliever-chad-qualls-from-phillies

The New York Yankees have acquired right-handed reliever Chad Qualls from the Philadelphia Phillies for a player to be named or cash.

The Yankees made the deal Sunday during their 4-2 win over the Chicago White Sox. The Phillies designated the right-hander for assignment Wednesday.

Qualls was 1-1 with a 4.60 ERA in a team-high 35 appearances for the Phillies. Righty batters are hitting .250 (19 for 76) against him this year.

"He's kind of a guy that can get up to 95 mph, somewhat of a power guy, a sinker guy," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Very tough on right-handers."

The Yankees could be looking to add a veteran arm to a relief corps that has been hit hard by injuries. Closer Mariano Rivera is out for the season with a torn ligament in his knee and eighth-inning setup man David Robertson recently returned from a stint on the disabled list and faltered in the second of back-to-back outings.

Cory Wade has also struggled in his last several appearances.

"We mix and match a little bit here so we hope he's really effective for us," Girardi said.

To make room for Qualls on the 40-man roster, the Yankees designated minor league infielder Matt Antonelli for assignment.

Burnett's ERA is high because of his one disastrous start on May 2 against the Cardinals. He gave up 12 earned runs in less than 3 innings. The rest of his season has been spectacular. He is 9-1 with a 2.05 ERA if you throw out that start. Granted, he does have fewer innings due to his orbital bone injury to start the season.

The poll should have been who should win the final vote not who will win it - I'd be stunned if Darvish doesn't win.

Frieri, Hammel, Peavy, (Broxton?) are more deserving... Hiroki Kuroda has an ERA nearly 1/2 run better than Darvish and he didn't even make the final vote (not that I think he should be an all star). Heck Colby Lewis has a slightly better ERA than Darvish.

I wish Cardinal fans would stop repeating this made up BS that LaRussa is using to justify not picking Cueto .... Both Chris Sale and Felix Hernandez were picked in the AL (and are pitching on Sunday).

They should have been picked and if they are unavailable an alternate is picked.

They also changed the rule this year where it is up to the player on whether or not he wants to pitch.

Yeah I know but that start happened and it counts towards his numbers. If it didn't happen and he was 9-1 with a 2.05 ERA he'd obviously have a very strong case. But he's not. And the 81 innings jump out too. Yeah he missed time due to injury but you can't penalize the other guys that were able to pitch 100+ innings in half a season. Don't get me wrong, I think the Burnett story is great and I'm really happy to see him doing well... but he's not an All Star.

07-02-12, 04:31 PM
In looking at the snubs closer, I'm pretty stunned that Cueto and his 2.26 ERA wasn't good enough to make the NL list.

I'd almost take the NL's bench over the starters too.

Sure, it could have been, but that would have been a different poll. I make a choice when I'm creating the thread and go with it. :shrug:

Just giving you a hard time... the polls are a nice touch!

I wish Cardinal fans would stop repeating this made up BS that LaRussa is using to justify not picking Cueto .... Both Chris Sale and Felix Hernandez were picked in the AL (and are pitching on Sunday).

They should have been picked and if they are unavailable an alternate is picked.

They also changed the rule this year where it is up to the player on whether or not he wants to pitch.
He didn't waste his time - he went straight to the alternates.

Also - he named not a single Cardinal, but one Red.

I have to think LaRussa is sitting somewhere right now with a cigar in his mouth and a rescue dog on his lap, laughing at how easy it still is to get into the heads of Baker and Cueto.

More absurdity: Cueto's agent threatens grievance (http://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseball/professional/mlb-backs-tony-as-cueto-s-agent-threatens-grievance/article_497d3e7a-c488-11e1-a6d1-0019bb30f31a.html) -rolleyes-

I wonder if Cueto recognizes the irony here. Does he even remember the comments Phillips made about the Cardinals that originally sparked the brawl?

:) I did go with AL first since it looked like the NL was going to be no contest, not that I expect the AL to be either. I wonder if MLB would exclude Darvish and Harper just to troll for more traffic and registrations to their web site.

Cueto is always trying to kick up dust.

It's not his decision to skip to the alternate anymore. :rolleyes:

What part of "it's the players decision now" do you not comprehend?
