Will the Angels paint their stadium red?
The Angels hope that more than their stadium is on display next month when they play host to the All-Star game for the first time since 1989.
Mike Scioscia will be part of New York Yankees Manager Joe Girardi's American League staff, and the Angels manager said Sunday that several of his players were worthy of consideration for the July 13 game at Angel Stadium: center fielder Torii Hunter (.287 average, 10 homers and 45 runs batted in), starters Jered Weaver (6-3, 3.29 earned-run average) and Ervin Santana (6-4, 3.52) and second baseman Howie Kendrick (41 RBIs).
Scioscia implied that shortstop Erick Aybar might also be a worthy candidate if he continues a tear in which he is hitting .426 this month following the Angels' sweep of the Freeway Series at Dodger Stadium.
