Matt Thornton - All-Star

Congratulations to Matt Thornton for being selected to his first All-Star game!

Paul Konerko has a chance to be the final player voted in for the AL. The White Sox have been pretty fortunate when it comes to that.

I could mention what a sham that All-Star voting is, but the fans actually impressed me with Joe Mauer being the top vote getter in the AL. He definitely deserves it. I am pleasantly surprised that Ken Griffey Jr. did not get voted in. Of course there will be a White Sox player on the team. MLB mandates that every team must have a representative.

I'm not going to defile myself with that type of thinking. Matt Thornton deserves a place on the All-Star team. He's deserved one for awhile as one of the best middle relievers in the game.

middle relievers should not be all stars

Neither should utility players or most closers, but there ya go.

As much as it pains me to give any ChiSox player any credit, I did vote for Konerko in the Final Vote.

I agree with both of you. You'll never see a middle reliever or a utility player in the Hall of Fame, why put one in the All-Star game?
