    Frankly, I'm not holding out much hope.

    PS: They're right.
    At least I grasp why relief pitchers don't start All-Star games.

    As I said, context.

    Now run back to the football forum where you can check on your contest results.

    Reyes probably wont even make it.

    It will be Hanley Ramirez most likely.

    I really don't see the depth you do. The 2 leagues are fairly balanced.

    the starting pitcher for the AL should be kazmir, he's been sick since coming back from injury.


    NL will be webb, i think kaz webb would be a good matchup to watch for an all star game.

    I really don't see this happening. I'm sure Mo is going to be guaranteed the 9th inning no matter what the situation is.

    Reyes is gonna have a hard time swinging from his house.

    repeating the word context does not make your idea less wrong.

    Reyes hasn't been great with the glove thus far but I'd bet it is an aberration, he is still better than Hanley.

    Hanley is a #3 hitter while Reyes is a leadoff guy. They are both pretty darn good players, I'd give a slight edge to Hanley's power but that is about it.

    Hanley had 17 more HR's last year and has 6 more then reyes now. Thats a little more then a slight difference. You also got to give Hanley the edge on Avg. and OBP.

    Ramirez is far more dependable and consistent with the glove

    It might be that my expectations for Reyes were so high and he is not the player I thought he would be

    Ramirez is worse than Jeter.
