Ubaldo Jimenez, Troy Tulowitzki Chosen for All-Star Game

This morning at 11am MT, MLB revealed its 2010 All-Star team.

Ubaldo Jimenez was a no-brainer choice, going 14-1 with a 2.27 ERA.  His fourteen wins represent the most in major league baseball and the most in franchise history in before the All--Star Break.  With just four more wins, he will set the franchise record for wins in a season. 

Troy Tulowitzki was not voted in by the fans, but the players gave him the nod for the first time in his career.  Unfortunately, the nation won't be able to witness Tulo's awesomeness due to his injury.  It is worth noting that Tulowitzki ranks #1 among all MLB shortstops in WAR at both Fangraphs and Baseball-Reference, even though he has not played since June 17.  

Miguel Olivo was the biggest snub for the club, if not the major leagues.  The 31-year-old Dominican leads all National League catchers in all three triple crown categories as well as runners caught stealing.  He is third in stolen bases and has as many triples as every other MLB catcher with 200+ PA combined.  Naturally, he leads all MLB catchers in WAR, both via Fangraphs' formula and Baseball-Reference's formula.  We are talking about a guy that has thoroughly outclassed his fellow position mates.

Miguel, we salute you.  Rockies fans know how much you have owned this season.

Carlos Gonzalez has a chance to become the third Rockie chosen this year.  He is one of the five finalists for the final fan vote-in, along with Joey Votto, Heath Bell, Billy Wagner, and Ryan Zimmerman.  Votto is a ridiculous oversight by himself, and the other three have very strong cases, so CarGo has an uphill battle.  The Mountain Time Zone must represent.  

Vote here for Carlos Gonzalez.  You have until Thursday at 2pm MT.
