Baseball Between the Seams
Wood and Soriano won't be playing, but Carlos Marmol is taking Kerry's roster spot at the All Star Game. David Wright got Alfonso's.

All Star Game,
The addition of Marmol is mind boggling. He was lights out great for a couple of months this season and very much deserved consideration, but the last 2 months he's been one of the worst pitchers in baseball. I want the NL to win, which means under no circumstances do I want Marmol to be on the field. Not even with a 7 or 8 run lead against an all-star team.
Hurdle said he did it simply because he was the next guy on the player's ballot.
I think that's a pretty poor excuse, Harry. This meaningless game isn't so meaningless yet it's not treated that way. The players and coaches still treat this like a meaningless game. I don't blame them, but I'd like to see them put the best team on the field and try to win it.
