Weaver out, Bailey in for Tuesday's All-Star Game

Jul 11, 2010, 5:22 PM EDT

We have yet another roster shakeup for Tuesday’s All-Star Game. 

According to the Oakland A’s official Twitter feed, Angels starter Jered Weaver, who was picked to replace Trevor Cahill on the American League All-Star roster, has now pulled out of the game because he is on the mound this afternoon and pitching in the exhibition would throw off his normal rest schedule. 

A’s closer Andrew Bailey has been named as his replacement, marking the second consecutive year that he will be honored along with baseball’s elite at the Midsummer Classic. 

Bailey, 26, has a 1.75 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and 17 saves in 20 chances this season.  He is the first Athletic to be named to two straight All-Star games since Mark Mulder was selected in both 2003 and 2004.

    Give it up, it’s not a stick it to Boston thing.
    1) Papelbon isn’t even the best reliever on his own team.
    2) Bailey is more deserving. A few saves less, but a much more impressive ERA.
    3) Verlander and Colby Lewis merit more consideration than Papelbon.
    4) Girardi hates Papelbon…just kidding.

    C’mon give it a rest on the Girardi is sicking it to Boston theory.
    1) For this year, Papelbon isn’t even the best reliever on his own team.
    2) Bailey has two less saves, but half the ERA that Papelbon does.
    3) Colby Lewis and Verlander are much more deserving and they were bypassed.
    4) Girardi hates Papelbon…just kidding.

    So there was a great uproar that Weaver did not make the roster, and apparently he didn’t want to be there anyway. Stay Classy, HBT.
