    Rejoice Twins Fans

    Liriano was informed today that he would be replacing injured Chicago White Sox pitcher Jose Contreras at the All-Star game, being aired tomorrow night live from PNC Park on FOX at 8:00 p.m. ET. He'll be joining Twins All-Stars Joe Mauer and Johan Santana in Pittsburgh.

    Liriano has compiled extraordinarily impressive numbers throughout the first half of his rookie campaign. Liriano has a 10-1 record, with a 1.83 ERA and 102 strikeouts in 88+ innings. Congratulations Francisco!

    I would have rather had him voted in. Kinda takes the eliteness off of being as All Star.

    Agreed Ultra it would have been much better had he made it straight up. Its a serious joke that AJ makes it over him, not to mention several other guys on the squad who have no buisness being there.

    It's about time. I'm sorry, but I think he's the best pitcher in the league and he needed to be an All-Star. NotwI just need Barrett to get in!

    Tonight's Home Run Derby should be very interesting. Go Ryan Howard!



    Thank you Josdin for the sig

    Pitchers aren't voted in - except if a pitcher happens to be part of the silly "fill-the-last-slot" vote thingy which Liriano was a part of last week. The pitching staff is selected by the managers of the NL & AL All-Star teams, just as the reserves are selected.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    To make it more fair, everyone should be voted in. The manager should'nt be allowed to pick who they want.

    Then the team would be filled with Yankees and Red Sox and rarely would any young and deserving player make it.

    To make it more fair, eliminate the fan vote and have an impartial board of Hall-of-Famers make the selections solely based on performance during the first half of the season.
