MLB All-Star Game 2011 Rotations Revealed

New, 1 comment

The MLB All-Star Game vote-winning rotations have been released, too. The AL side features two Rays' starters in David Price and James Shields and two Tigers in Justin Verlander and Jose Valverde. One interesting inclusion is rookie Aaron Crow of the Royals, further cementing his status as heir-apparent to Joakim Soria.

The NL side is dotted with Giants and Phillies, with Cain, Lincecum, Vogelsong, Wilson, Lee, Halladay, Hamels and Hanrahan -- which leads me to ask if this approaches one of the "wildest dream rotations" ever.
