No surprise here -- The Franchise and Bryan Wilson were named this morning to the All-Star team.
Tim was actually the starting pitcher for the NL last year.
I looked back to see who's been named to the All-Star team in recent years, though the site hasn't been updated to say who got named in 2009 .
Count yourself as a true Giants fan if you know: that Moises Alou made the team as Giant in 2005; that Shawn Estes was an All-Star in 1997; the year that Chris Brown was a Giants All-Star (1986); or that Bob Schmidt made the team as a Giant in 1958. It's a reminder of how lousy the teams were in 2005-07 -- each team had only the minimum one player from the Giants. Here's the list for the last 20 years --
