The MLS unveiled both their starting lineups and in-active rosters today for tomorrow’s All-Star game. I will tackle the starting lineup first.

It will look something like this:

———–Eddie Johnson—–Juan Pablo Angel————-

——————–Dwayne DeRosario———————-

Juan Toja————————————Ronnie O’Brien

————–Ricardo Clark—–Shalrie Joseph————

Jonathan Bornstein————————-Jimmy Conrad

———————Michael Parkhurst———————-

————————–Matt Reis—————————

One surprise to me in the lineup is Ronnie O’Brien. I can honestly say I wasn’t expecting to see him in the starting lineup. Another shocker to some will be the fact that Landon Donovan will not be starting for the league in this game. In all honesty I am happy about that.

Only a couple surprises in the in-active All-Star roster for the MLS.

The complete list:
Kyle Beckerman (MF, Real Salt Lake);
Jim Brennan (DF, Toronto FC);
Jeff Cunningham (FW, Toronto FC);
Danny Dichio (FW, Toronto FC);
Brad Guzan (GK; Chivas USA);
Frankie Hejduk (DF; Columbus Crew);
Justin Mapp (MF; Chicago Fire);
Ben Olsen (MF, D.C. United);
Guillermo Barros Schelotto (MF, Columbus Crew);
Steve Ralston (MF, New England Revolution);
Claudio Reyna (MF, New York Red Bulls);
Eddie Robinson (DF, Houston Dynamo);
Taylor Twellman (FW, New England Revolution);
Ronald Waterreus (GK, New York Red Bulls)

Still no Pat Onstad and no Maykel Galindo. Are you kidding me? Ronald Waterreus is a good keeper that had a good start to the season but injuries have hurt his season I think. Pat Onstad the league leader in goals-against-average has been snubbed yet again. And Galindo deserves this nod over Danny Dichio, Jeff Cunningham, Claudio Reyna, or Justin Mapp.

    Dallas may be the best team in MLS and has only one AS? Richetti, Goodson & possibly Gbandi should get a mention here too. If Dallas doesn't have good player how are they getting the points?
