Falling stars

The Red Sox may be sending five players to next week’s All-Star Game in San Francisco (and possibly six with the impending vote total for reliever Hideki Okajima), but apparently none warranted inclusion in Fox’s cable car promo for the game.

Granted, Fox shoots these things well in advance, but Jason Giambi? He hasn’t been an All-Star since 2004.

Among the other players in the ad who are not headed to San Francisco:

Nomar Garciaparra
Barry Zito
Joe Mauer
Lance Berkman
Ryan Howard
Andruw Jones
Roy Halladay (still up for final vote)
Jason Bay
Jimmy Rollins
