All Star Rosters Announced

2007_07_sports_mlb_allstar_.jpgMajor League Baseball announced the rosters for the July 10 All-Star Game being held in San Francisco. Chicago baseball fans will see at least three of our local guys in the game.

Given the White Sox sub par season, it's not surprising that they have only one All-Star this year -- the minimum representation any team gets. Closer Bobby Jenks will be the lone Sox player on the Americal League roster this year. Quite a difference from seven Sox players who made the team last year!

Cubs send Derrek Lee and Alfonso Soriano to San Fran -- and Carlos Zambrano can still make the roster, as well.

In this year's Monster All-Star Final Vote, Zambrano is among the five NL finalists. Vote to get him into the Game.

Think that Cubs fans can do it? White Sox fans voted in Scott Podsednik in 2005 and A.J. Pierzynski last year, so it'd be really embarrassing for Cubs fans if they couldn't do the same for their guy. Afterall, there are a lot more fans of the Cubbies in town, right? So go ahead and vote Z into the All-Star Game.
