The Paper Trail of July 5

by John Perrotto

The Associated Press (via USA Today) reports that Joe Mauer and Albert Pujols are the top vote-getters as Major League Baseball announces the All-Star teams.

Tim Sullivan of the San Diego Union-Tribune writes that Mat Latos and Heath Bell being left off the National League All-Star team shows that the Padres' winning run is an ensemble effort.

Michael Rosenberg of the Detroit Free Press writes that Brennan Boesch was snubbed from the All-Star Game because of a complicated voting system.

Dave Krieger of the Denver Post urges fans to vote early and often for Carlos Gonzalez for the final spot on the NL All-Star team.

The Post's Troy E. Renck writes that there were three swings and misses on the All-Star snub of Miguel Olivo.

Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune writes that Marlon Byrd and Matt Thornton are All-Stars.

Dan Woike of the Orange County Register writes that Torii Hunter was selected to the American League All-Star team then had two home runs and seven RBIs to help the Angels roll over the Royals.

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writes that Yovani Gallardo was selected to his first All-Star Game then left his start with a strained oblique muscle.

Tom Groeschen of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes that Drew Stubbs hit three of his team's seven home runs as the Reds routed the Cubs.

Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe writes that Clay Buchholz will be placed on the disabled list with a hamstring injury.

Steve Buckley of the Boston Herald writes that David Ortiz has had a huge and historic turnaround.

Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record writes that Jorge Posada was hurt after taking a foul ball off his finger but x-rays were negative.

Toni Ginnetti of the Chicago Sun-Times writes that Aramis Ramirez sat out for a second straight game and hopes the rest will fix his sore thumb.

Jim Souhan of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune writes that the Twins need to make a trade for pitching, even though some players feel a deal is not necessary.
