There is a good possibility the fish could have 3 IFs in the all star game this season. How many times has that happened? The only one that jumps in my mind (and i dont even know if this is right), the Cards had Rolen/Renteria/Vidro a few years back. Has it happened since? Prior to that? Im guessing the Yanks/Sox did this a bunch (mostly due to voting) but they don't count. :mischief

..and yes, I know its too early to be talking AS game.. we have much more important things to worry about.

Vidro was never a Cardinal. I dont really see us having three infielders in the All Star game. Miggs and Hanley though isnt bad representation for the infield.

Eckstein, Rolen, Pujols
Cano, Jeter, ARod

both from last year. It seems to happen especially withthose teams who have fans that all go out and vote their guys into the all star game.

For some reason, I thought Fernando Vina was an all-star for the Cardinals.. so a big nevermind on that guy.

I'm not counting out Uggla though, thats for sure.

Cabrera is almost a lock, all he has to do is keep being himself. As for Hanley and Uggla, it's a toss up. Hanley has the better numbers but Uggla has an advantage because of the lack of depth it 2B in NL. They could both make it or they could both not make it. I'd also keep an eye on D-Train. At this pace he'd be 12-3 before July. The ERA could be lower but I think 10+ wins will force Tony La Russo to pick him.

Its been done before as I recall the 1980 NL team had Dodgers at 1b, 2b & ss in the starting line-up. It would be nice to get three in the gme, BUT there's still a lot of baseball to be played.

You just gotta think that the Reds Perez/Morgan/Rose pulled the trifecta at least once.

Plus, Dodgers Cey/Lopes/Garvey.

Well, whoever makes it for the Marlins better get at least 1 at-bat. I'm sure everyone remembers the Golden Boy getting 3 at-bats last season and Miggy getting 0.

What's wrong with this pic?

At least 4 don't belong on the ballot at all?

Cabrera should be a lock to get in, but I think Reyes will get the national(read New York) vote.
Hanley's gonna' get jobbed out of the spot unless he not only clearly outplays him but beats him statistically by a bit in most categories. Any tie or close to tie goes to Reyes.

Expect it to happen again...Marlins players always get screwed by MLB.....Bud Selig wishes the Marlins never existed.

and the correct answer is. Jeremy Hermida is on the ballot. I think you're supposed to have at least one hit before you can make the All Star team.

Not saying you should all really vote for him, but it's pretty amazing that Jeremy "I haven't played a game yet" Hermida gets a spot on the ballot.
