All Star Starters Leaked

According to a report from the New York Post (in which the link has recently been removed), the All-Star starters have been leaked for the game at Yankee Stadium. Here is what is reported,

NL All-Star Starters:
C: Geovany Soto (Cubs)
1B: Lance Berkman (Astros)
2B: Chase Utley (Phillies)
SS: Hanley Ramirez (Marlins)
3B: Chipper Jones (Braves)
OF: Alfonso Soriano (Cubs)
OF: Kosuke Fukodome (Cubs)
OF: Ken Griffey Jr. (Reds)
SP: Brandon Webb (Diamondbacks)
EDIT: So the report wasnt entirely correct as Milwaukee Outfield Ryan Braun did surpass Griffey as starting outfielder.

AL All-Star Starters:
C: Joe Mauer (Twins)
1B: Kevin Youkilis (Red Sox)
2B: Dustin Pedroia (Red Sox)
SS: Derek Jeter (Yankees)
3B: Alex Rodriguez (Yankees)
OF: Manny Ramirez (Red Sox)
OF: Ichiro Suzuki (Mariners)
OF: Josh Hamilton (Rangers)
DH: David Ortiz (Red Sox)
SP: Cliff Lee (Indians)

Hopefully this report is valid and it will be able to confirmed at the TBS All-Star Game Selection Show today. I'm guessing that the DH for the NL will be Albert Pujols.

Who do you wanna see on the squads? The only players I disagree with as starters are Soriano, Griffey, and Pedroia. I know it is based on fan voting but hopefully the guys who deserve to be on the team find their way on the teams and not suffer from the we need at least one Royal or Pirate on the team rule.
