    Who should be the starting pitchers for the All-Star game?

    I really don't care who starts for the NL, but I'm almost positive that Zack Greinke will start for the AL. He has a 2.00 era, and is tied for the major league lead in wins, while playing for the Royals who are 10 games below .500.

    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    In the AL, I'd rank the guys that deserve it:

    1. Greinke
    2. Jackson
    3. Halladay
    4. Hernandez
    5. Buerhle

    NL, off the top of my head, Lincecum.

    Ted Lilly will pitch a complete game for both teams. He will hit a home run (off of himself, natch) to give the NL a 1-0 victory.

    55 pitches.

    Kevin Millwood deserved a bid over Wakefield.

    I'm not sure where Chuck Haeger, the White Sox callup from a couple years ago, has landed. SD maybe?

    EDIT: Albuquerque Isotopes.

    Lincecum should start for both teams. No question he's the best pitcher in baseball.
