Tuesday Rockpile: The Not-All-Star Team

New, 1024 comments

WE HAVE OVERFILLED THE ROCKPILE AGAIN SO GO DISCUSS THINGS HERE

 

Oh, look, I'm doing a Rockpile! Andrew T. Fisher is having internet issues, but the other Andrew gave me an suggestion for this Rockpile: the Not-All-Star Team. I'll just be making one team, and this is based on WAR. You'll find it after the jump, but first today's links:

Rockies' Jimenez picked to make start against AL in All-Star Game - The Denver Post

"It's not something [starting the ASG] I was thinking about. There are so many great pitchers, you don't expect this to ever happen," said Jimenez, whose parents, Ubaldo Sr. and Ramona, joined him at the Midsummer Classic. "It's an honor to represent my family, my team and my country. This is special. It's humbling."

Kiszla: Ubaldo generates mile-high respect - The Denver Post

Like a 98-mph fastball from Ubaldo Jimenez, this was hard to see coming. A pitcher from Colorado starting the All-Star Game is a bigger upset than the Rockies playing in the World Series.

Renck: Tulo speeding through recovery - The Denver Post
Notes from Renck: Tulowitzki could return in as soon as two weeks; the Rockies are still interested in Dan Uggla; and Giants' closer Brian WIlson doesn't care about the humidor.
