David Price: AL Starting pitcher?

Rumblings came out yesterday from Yankees Manager Joe Girardi that David Price, the Rays young 12 game winner, is a top candidate to start the All Star game next week for the American League:

“Obviously when you look at the five pitchers that we have going, the five starters – and you have to exclude (Boston’s Clay) Buchholz because he’s on the DL – Price, (New York’s Phil) Hughes, (Seattle’s Cliff) Lee, (Boston’s Jon) Lester, and (New York’s Andy) Pettitte, these are all qualified guys. And you look at who’s on turn. Price is leading the American League in wins. He’s an extremely strong candidate. I think he’s second in ERA. He’s had a fabulous first half. And we’ll look at that as we get closer to Sunday.’’
