Time Out – July 13

It appears Roy Halladay will start for the American League in Tuesday’s all-star game. An all-star supplement in Sunday’s St. Louis Post-Dispatch featured a starting lineup card for the Midsummer Classic listing Halladay in the pitcher’s spot for the AL, and San Francisco Giants star Tim Lincecum for the National League.

It appears Roy Halladay will start for the American League in Tuesday’s all-star game. An all-star supplement in Sunday’s St. Louis Post-Dispatch featured a starting lineup card for the Midsummer Classic listing Halladay in the pitcher’s spot for the AL, and San Francisco Giants star Tim Lincecum for the National League.

Did the paper jump the gun, or was it just taking an educated guess? A source tells The Canadian Press that Halladay has indeed been asked to start and accepted the invitation, although he had yet to get a final answer about his status. The starting pitchers will be announced Monday at a news conference for the all-star game. Zack Greinke of the Kansas City Royals and Seattle Mariners fireballer Felix Hernandez are the other leading candidates for the AL. Danny Haren of the Arizona Diamondbacks is another strong contender for the NL. The honour would be well-deserved for Halladay, who is 10-3 with a 2.85 earned-run average in 17 games this season. This is his sixth all-star game selection.
