    Coo. Posey doesn't deserve it. Wouldn't have minded Hudson getting in, but absolutely don't care about All-Star selections. Total crapshoot that means little.

    Yeah, it would be cool if Hudson made it. He's more than deserving.

    But but posey is the best hitting catcher in the league that's where his true value is and why we can never discuss moving him to 1b or 3b full time .... Sarcasm if you guys didn't know.

    And would still be around league average at those positions. His value is at C.

    Any word on if Posey is replacing Molina? Molina is out 8-12 weeks with a torn ligament in his thumb. Huge blow to the Cards.

    Posey would make sense as a replacement. Haven't heard anything yet...

    Most speculation on Twitter is that it will be Posey or Miguel Montero.

    I'd rather Posey stay home. Bochy thinks he needs rest twice a week; might as well let him buy some extra rest.

    I think that it's really important for the *pitchers* to get that extra rest. That's why I'm so happy about MadBum - he got named, gets to parade, but will be replaced because he is pitching this coming Sunday and thus ineligible to appear.

    You can definitely make a case for Montero.

    Montero: .265/.346/.419 .334 wOBA 108 wRC+ 1.8 WAR

    Posey: .279/.337/.421 .329 wOBA 114 wRC+ 1.9 WAR

    Looks like it is going to be Montero.
