We're quickly closing in on the All-Star Game July 15 in Yankee Stadium and the starting lineups and rosters for the game will be announced Sunday at 2 on TBS. In Sunday's Inside Baseball column, I check off my ballot for the American League and National League starters. Here's who I chose:
INFIELD -- American League: Kevin Youkilis, Dustin Pedroia, Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez. National League: Lance Berkman, Chase Utley, Ryan Theriot and Chipper Jones.
OUTFIELD -- AL: Carlos Quentin, Grady Sizemore and Josh Hamilton. NL: Matt Holliday, Ryan Braun and Aaron Rowand.
CATCHERS -- AL: Joe Mauer. NL: Russell Martin.
I'll have more analysis on the picks in the column and some possible alternative choices, especially in the crowded outfields. Give your thumbs-up to my picks or voice your disagreements in the comments section.
Also Sunday, read my chat with first-year Pittsburgh GM Neal Huntington, the former Indians farm director, on his quest to rebuild the Bucs. We'll also have complete coverage of the Bisons' game in Rochester.
