In case you hadn’t heard, Hanley Ramirez and Josh Johnson will be joining the National League All-Stars as they try to take home-field advantage for the league against the American League at the All-Star game later this month. Congratulations to Hanley and JJ for making the team, it will be a well-deserved trip to St. Louis for the two of them.
Check out the rest of the NL roster here. The AL roster to face them is here. I had an issue with Tim Wakefield and Jason Marquis making the festivities, as both have been average and made it on the back of a 10-win season so far. We all know wins are seconday to actual performance. Still congratulations to everyone who made the team, and we’ll see you all in St. Louis to duke it out for home-field.
