Color us shocked and impressed. Major League Baseball today annouced that James Shields, David Price, and Matt Joyce were named to the AL All-Star squad as reserves. Both Shields and Joyce were voted in by the players.

Most had thought that only Shields would make the squad, and because of the Rays schedule, he would not be able to participate.

Also, Ben Zobrist is one of five players that are competing for the final roster spot. You can vote for that honor at

You can also see all three players talking about their selection over at The Heater.

    Joyce was voted to be one of the best players(hitters) in the league,by the players,
    Maddon voted to only play him in certain situations depending who is pitching... I can't figure out who is right (ie Smarter)??
