All Stars

The rosters for the 2007 Major League Baseball All-Star Game have been announced. Notably, Milwaukee's Prince Fielder received the second most number of votes in the NL, and will start at first base, becoming the first Brewer voted to the starting lineup since Paul Molitor at third base in 1988. Teammates J.J. Hardy (SS), Francisco Cordero (P), and Ben Sheets (P) also made the roster. The Brewers tied the Mets for the most players on the NL roster. Detroit led the AL roster with 5.

This pleases me. If things go according to plan, we will have a Milwaukee-Detroit World Series. While all the national focus is on the coasts, the Midwest is growing strong, and power is coming back to the middle, where it belongs.
