Your Phillies All-Stars Are …
This is Utley’s fourth consecutive All-Star appearance.
This is Ibanez’s first.
Still waiting on the reserves.
Update: Ryan Howard has been named a reserve. Charlie Manuel is bringing four first basemen to St. Louis: Albert Pujols, Prince Fielder, Adrian Gonzalez and Howard.
Shane Victorino has been named to the Final Vote ballot, which means he can make the NL All-Star team.
His challengers are Nationals shortstop Cristian Guzman, Diamondbacks third baseman Mark Reynolds, Giants first baseman Pablo Sandoval and Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp.
In my opinion, it’s a two-man race between Victorino and Kemp. I just don’t see the fan support there for Guzman, Reynolds or Sandoval.
