Welcome back to the Herb Chambers Chevrolet pregame show John Ryder windier it's time for clubhouse insider -- WPI dot com's rob Bradford as we get ready for game two of those three games -- is between the Red Sox. And the angels in Anaheim has always been -- John it's a beautiful night for baseball which is a fail safe because it's always a beautiful night for days on your your right about that well the all star selections have been made. What do you think about the selections the -- -- elections over there were very many surprises at all we needed game turkeys can be voted and and he deserves -- this isn't one of these things where he's with the popular name indeed -- voted in. He's the best designated hitter in the American League. Dustin Pedroia also deserves -- he's 71 of the best use of his career. And then you look he -- buckles Clay Buchholz. He was gonna if not not only training to be an all star by if you stayed healthy very good chance of being the Ulster start. Got hurt him hasn't pitched since early June so that's a surprise either. Then you have the final blow with coach you are out -- in the mix with four other names and yeah I think he has a chance. If it is gonna come down to the fair and it's not necessarily accomplishments what about over all around the league has some snubs and surprises. Yes you know I think it -- to kind of go back to you look at. How -- teams who are rappers allies and enlist in the Red Sox the best -- best record in the American League. And really only has three guys that's not a time. But you look at it for example. Castro Houston -- the catcher and he has almost identical numbers -- -- and so much he makes the team Saltalamacchia doesn't. Which to be -- John has surprised me a little bit. And all the conversations that we've had about this. -- Salisbury. -- who are US Knoblauch not a lot of conversation -- Saltalamacchia. Almost exactly -- a member of the Castro but when you have a few guys on one team make it in only one guy. Make it for the Houston. And -- yet to win them no insult Mike is cut -- on to this season already all right the -- around Major League Baseball as. Yes he'll squeeze the Dodgers outfielder whether he deserves to make it with the short sample size in terms of games is not talked about too much but around here it is a little bit. Whether Jose Iglesias is deserving and yeah that maybe it was a surprise in the sense that he basically seized him get on that final vote. I know that. -- John -- talked to me we've been about who are so that was pushed a little bit and now but yet and now and I think that to a RO also if you look at how we would approach that -- a lot of middle relievers. But I Iglesias if you today. If you figured on the week road I thought Iglesias after B units in the conversation. Has played I think twelve board games 1214 more games and -- Though that the whole month but here we are over forty games and give a guy hitting over 400. You at least deserve the conversation if you gonna have a conversation about the other guys though. I if this was like comes down at John. I think the fact that the fan vote these guys and they want them there and NASCAR to draw attention all star game which they need all the times -- and they certainly do and and it baseball's great would have thought it was -- Iglesias and Austin, Texas -- Really crazy. All right excellent as always rob appreciated and coming up next. We -- trip around the majors under her chamber Chevrolet pregame show on the WE pirate sites radio network.
