Agreed... Among reserve 1B, Votto was more deserving than Howard and Gonzalez both, so even if Manuel uses the "Howard is my player so I picked him" argument, which he did http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2010/07/05/SPNU1E9K1O.DTL
, Votto really still should be there. I still don't understand it.
And while we're at it... I don't get why Mat Latos didn't make it, either. Or Clayton Kershaw. One of them, preferably Kershaw since he's left-handed, should have gone over Lincecum.
And Matt Holliday < Andrew McCutchen and teammate Colby Rasmus.
Lots of interesting picks here... I hope Manuel manages the Phillies in the 2nd half like he managed the reserve selection process.
And haha, yeah, I wouldn't blast Prado; he deserves to be there and deserves to be starting. He seems to get two hits in just about every other game that he plays. It's ridiculous.
