It's official: Magglio's an All-Star

MLB  made the announcement today with Manny pulling out and Ordonez added to the team. No official reason given on the press release for why Ramirez pulled out, which is good for a chuckle when you think about it.

Top AL vote getter pulls out. That’s terrific. Maggy deserves to be on the team, he’s having the best year statistically on the team with the best record in baseball. How does THAT not deserve a bid? Glad to see he’s on it.

60 wins. That’s fantastic for Detroit and better than most would expect. The media however would like to tinker with these hard workers. They are a blue collar team but also very intelligent bunch led by a guru of sorts. I am very happy to be a Tigers fan.

The only way I can see to ‘trade up’ would be to find someone who was a young lefthander like Ryan Howard from Philly. The thing is I like our team and am really cringing as I suggest this. I really don’t know a lot about Mr. Howard but I do know that Shelton hits more like a lefthander so it might not be a huge deal.

What do you think Jason?

oops

The Tigers deserved more than three (3) selections. However, I guess Tiger fans should just be thankful for Magglio getting a spot.

As a Tiger fan since the early 70’s as a very young kid, I can certainly remember Alan Trammell getting screwed out of a starting selection several times when fans selected Bucky Dent. What a joke that selection was.

I don’t think Tiger management should do anything to tinker with this team. There is no doubt that they will go through a few losing streaks during the remainder of the season. However, I believe the Tiger starting pitching is just too strong for those losing streaks to be very long.

I vote for leaving the team just the way it is. No more John Schmoltz for Doyle Alexander trades. Let’s keep all of our good, young players, both in the majors and in the minors.

I think it’s great the tigers have those guy’s going to the All Star Game they deserve it.

Has anyone heard any updates or know the current status on the Tigers signing their #1 draft pick LHP Andrew Miller? Does anybody think we will see Miller pitching in the Tigers minor league system this season?
