    To all those with ruffled feathers. Sit down and have a glass of Iced Tea or lemonade. It’s hot over most the Country. Relax and try to enjoy life. It’s only an all star game.

      Are you high?

    It’s on Tony LaRussa that Grenke, Cueto, and Brandon Phillips is not on this team

    • ezthinking - Jul 1, 2012 at 5:28 PM

      Lynn has sucked lately. No business being on the team. LaHair? Tony, Tony, Tony

      • mcchef - Jul 1, 2012 at 7:41 PM

        I think LaHair was actually voted in by the players, not a selection by LaRussa. I could be wrong though, I did not fact check. Too lazy today.

      • kcz62364 - Jul 2, 2012 at 12:55 PM

        Lance Lynn was voted on the all star team by the players.

      • stlouis1baseball - Jul 2, 2012 at 2:14 PM

        Easy there…EZ: Lynne (Players pick). LaHair (Players pick).

    • chumthumper - Jul 2, 2012 at 11:06 AM

      So why didn’t their own fans think enough of them to vote them on?

    • stlouis1baseball - Jul 2, 2012 at 2:31 PM

      Yep…that’s it Johnny. And he picked Jay Effin Bruce because he also hates Matt Holiday and Allen Craig. You do realize how this process works right?
      I mean…you do realize the fans vote the starters…the players vote the reserves…and the Manager picks the remaining spots that are left (after the obligatory player from each team is choosen). You realize this right? If so…you realize TLR had SIX PICKS LEFT TO FILL.
      Say it with me. HE HAD SIX PICKS. HE PICKED ZERO CARDINALS. HE HAD SIX PICKS. HE PICKED ZERO CARDINALS. HE HAD SIX PICKS. HE PICKED ZERO CARDINALS.
      One more thing…HE HAD SIX PICKS!

    Hey Drew, Tuesday is July 10th!

  4. footballchic777 - Jul 1, 2012 at 5:46 PM

    Chrisny3. How can you say fan voting should be stopped, then say Chipper should have gotten in just because it is his last year? OXYMORON!

  5. footballchic777 - Jul 1, 2012 at 5:52 PM

    BP and Cueto both got the LaRussa personal snub, and Yadi got the LaRussa pat on the back! Stay retired Tony!

    • stlouis1baseball - Jul 2, 2012 at 2:18 PM

      Try to learn a little about the selection process “Football”chic. It will help you understand things.
      After selecting the MLB MANDATED PLAYER REP’S (meaning…a player from each team not already selected is required to be in the ASG)….TLR was left with (6) players to select.
      HE SELECTED ZERO CARDINALS.
      Do your Homework prior to spouting off. Otherwise, your ignorance is illustrated for all to see.
      Please know this isn’t something that only pertains to you. There are apparently a great number of Redlegs loving people out their that don’t know their ass from the proverbial hole in the ground.
      Yet…they “whine” nonetheless.

  6. pxeeks - Jul 1, 2012 at 7:09 PM

    Chooch and Wright should be starters. But AL will destroy the NL. AL lineup is sick! #phillies1

  7. jonirocit - Jul 1, 2012 at 7:24 PM

    It’s a game for the fans tools ! If it was a stat thing then let the CPU pick and see if u like the game I’m pretty sure people wouldn’t tune in as much. If u don’t get the fact that the purpose is to build loyalty and get behind your guys then your a clown . Props to giants fans for giving a shit and voting for their guys and all you people crying or calling them ballot stuffers your clueless the whole point is to stuff the ballot .

  8. dkphilly1122 - Jul 1, 2012 at 8:10 PM

    LED is a moron…….Chooch has better numbers than Yad does…..hence is better than him this year. Yad is a great catcher no doubt about it, but this year Chooch is tearing him and all catchers up. You said defensively too…..Chooch is one of the best, if not THE best defensive catchers in the league. Ask any pitcher that see’s the plays he makes and all. Someone said average guys steal on Chooch, which is bullshit, and better players attempt to steal on Yad, yet again bullshit. I won’t say either is bad, but Chooch has better numbers THIS year, so he gets the nod. Both of them SHOULD have gotten the start over Buster Posey…..that’s in the numbers as well, but i’ll tip my hat to the fans for voting Posey the starter, he deserves to make it, just not as the starter. Someone else said Chooch is arrogant or something……which is definitely not true. He’s one of the most humble guys on the Phillies and never takes enough credit in games, the perfect games and all he’s been there for. So get your opinion on someone based off of the truth, not bullshit.

      Couldn’t agree more

  9. agc99 - Jul 1, 2012 at 10:12 PM

    Why no AJ Burnett?
    He’s had a great first half after several subpar seasons.
    It’s good for baseball to have stories like his.

  10. bbk1000 - Jul 2, 2012 at 6:55 AM

    Three Giants were voted in? From their own website:

    “The Giants’ get-out-the-vote drive pushed Cabrera from fourth place among outfielders in last week’s final voting update to first. The switch-hitter surged to a total of 7,521,784 votes”

    Ballot stuffing….nothing new but always entertaining, these players should be embarrassed. Anybody who follows the game knows they weren’t the best, or either the second best for that matter.
