I\’ll be in and out most of this week, as relatives are in town. However, just wanted to leave you with this question posed to me by a buddy:

All the national media have this National League outfielder pegged as a no-brainer all star:

AB: 316
R: 53
2B: 23
HR: 15
RBI: 30
SB: 10
BA: .304
OBP: .352
SLG: .544

Now look at this outfielder, who hasn\’t been mentioned for anything:

AB: 218
R: 39
2B: 12
HR: 11
RBI: 32
SB: 16
BA: .317
OBP: .388
SLG: .532

The first outfielder is the Cubs\’ Alfonso Soriano, while the second is Brewer Corey Hart. Not a whole lot of difference, but, of course, all-star picks are based almost solely on reputation.
