Soria, nearly perfect American League manager Terry Francona selected Royals’ closer Joakim Soria for the All-star roster.  Soria’s 23 saves in 24 opportunities with a 1.23 ERA certainly deserves the spot on the roster.

The other Royals’ player that manager Trey Hillman thought was putting up all-star like numbers, Jose Guillen was not selected by Francona or the players, but he is a finalist for the 32 nd spot on the roster where fans will have the final say.
