I don't know that I have a lot to add to the N.L. selections.  The Ryan Vogelsong pick is a bit of a curveball -- he only has 77 innings, and his middling peripherals make him pretty questionable -- but he's apparently going to be used as the N.L.'s long man, held back in case the game goes 16 innings or something like that.
