2008 All-Star Game Thread

CLIFF LEE, starting pitcher:  You couldn't make this story up.  Underachieving in 2006, injured and frustrated and humbled and nearly cast aside in 2007 ... dominant in 2008.   In a season when so much has gone wrong, something has gone very right for this guy.


GRADY SIZEMORE, reserve outfielder:  No longer just a coverboy, he now leads the league in home runs, and he's on pace for 38 stolen bases.  He dives all over the outfield and basepaths and already owns a Gold Glove.  He shows little sign of ever taking himself seriously.  And chicks really, really dig him.

NOT APPEARING TONIGHT:  Lee Stevens, Brandon Phillips, Bartolo Colon and Tim Drew.
