Brewers Send 4 to the ALL-STAR game

Your first place Brewers send 4 to the 2007 All-Star game. Prince Fielder was voted a starter in a tough field that include Albert Pujols, last year's HR king Ryan Howard, and Derek Lee. Fielder's vote total was surpassed only by Cincinnati outfielder Ken Griffey Jr.'s 2,986,818 for the NL squad. JJ Hardy gets the nod, as does Francisco Cordero, and ace Ben Sheets. Hardy got off to an unbelievable start this year and is well deserving. Sheets is tied for 1st for the most wins in the NL with 10, CoCo leads the NL in saves, and Prince leads the NL in HRs.
