I'm thrilled and honored to have 4 representatives and to have 2 voted in!!!

Of course Jeremy Affeldt has made it his personal mission to prove everyone wrong over the 2nd half.  He was happy to see Kevin Millwood be awarded the player of the week, even though Affeldt only gave up 3 hits in his shutout.  :D

Nice to see that in 2 straight games my guys gave up a total of 5 hits.

Tracy-
Affeldt doesn't need to prove anything to me...  I voted for him over my own Jason Schmidt...

Considering that my rotation includes:

Kevin Brown
CC Sabathia
Bartolo Colon
Paul Byrd
Miguel Batista

.......  if you had told me before the year started that I'd have 2 starting pitchers on the All Star team, Byrd and Batista would have been my LAST guess.  They're due for a major implosion in the 2nd half.  Good news is that the other 3 guys should pick up the slack.
