Girardi names David Price All-Star Game starter

When we were flying out of Seattle last night, one of the other beat writers asked me who I thought Joe Girardi would pick to start the All-Star Game. My answer was, whoever is most rested. It just seemed like the kind of thing Girardi would use as a tie-breaker among David Price, Jon Lester, Cliff LeeĀ and Andy Pettitte.

I have no idea whether that actually entered his mind, but it’s exactly what Girardi did. Price will be the American League starter — probably the most deserving choice regardless of rest — while 15-game-winner Ubaldo Jimenez will start for the National League. The managers just made the announcement on MLB Network.
