Pedroia Out; Pena In

One of the spoils of managing the All-Star Game is that you can pick almost whomever you wish, so long as Major League Baseball goes along with it.

Dustin Pedroia has bowed out of the midsummer classic to be with his pregnant wife. That's cool, and I'm sure we can all respect that.

But replace Pedroia with Carlos Pena?

Great - Pena leads the AL with 24 home runs - that's cool. But he's hitting .230!

I have this love/not-so-much-love thing with the All-Star Game. This reminds me why I feel this way.

Hit .230 and you're an All-Star? What's next?
