David Price and Ubaldo Jimenez named All-Star starters

Jul 12, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

As expected, David Price of the Rays and Ubaldo Jimenez of the Rockies were officially named the All-Star starters in a press conference this afternoon.
Price was a relatively easy pick for the AL, as he leads the league in both ERA (2.42) and wins (12) while ranking second in Quality Starts.
Jimenez’s recent struggles pushed his ERA from 1.15 to 2.20 in the past five starts and I would have given the nod to Josh Johnson and his league-leading 1.70 ERA, but between Jimenez’s early season dominance and shiny 15-1 record the Rockies’ ace was never in doubt as the actual pick.

    Charlie better not even pitch Roy Halladay. He just pitched 2 days ago, and pitched 9 innings. Even 1 inning is too much on 2 days rest when they need him for the rest of the season and he’s already pitched 7 complete games and 9 innings in an 8th,

    Halladay’s one of the most durable pitchers in baseball, one inning won’t kill him. Besides, pitchers regularly throw between starts.
