The rosters for this year's All Star Game have been released and the Phillies will be sending 4 players to Phoenix's Chase Field for next Tuesday's (July 12) game.

Placido Polanco was the leading vote getter at Third Base with 4,410,701 votes, 1,561,123 more votes than Braves 3B Chipper Jones. Polanco previously was an AL All Star at 2B for the TIgers in '09.

The Phillies are also sending 3 pitchers for the first time. The players vote for the teams pitching staff. Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, and Cole Hamels will make the trip to AZ. Halladay, 11-3 with a 2.44 ERA, is joining his 8th All Star team. Hamels is 9-4 with a 2.41 ERA, and his making his 2nd appearance. Lee is 9-6 with a 2.92 ERA, after completing one of the most dominant months this past June. This is his third All Star Game.

The Phillies have a chance to send another team member to the game. Shane Victorino is once again nominated as one of five players eligible for the Final Vote. Shane won a spot on the All Star Team in 2009 by the Fan Final Vote. You have until 4pm EST on Thursday July 7th to vote as much as you want.

Any other Phillies that should have or deserved to make the team this year?

As it has in recent years, the winner of the All Star Game determines home field advantage in the World Series. As we expect to be there this October, lets hope the NL can win it again.
