Bochy hasn't received All-Star campaign calls

CINCINNATI -- The silence has surprised Bruce Bochy.

The Giants manager, who will steer the National League squad in the July 16 All-Star Game, said Wednesday that he has received no phone calls from fellow managers intent on campaigning for one or two of their players.

As a result, Bochy must seek some answers for himself as he prepares for the selection of the Midsummer Classic rosters to be announced Saturday.

"I'll have to make some calls, just to see," he said Wednesday.

Bochy, who also managed the NL in the 1999 and 2011 All-Star Games, said that winnowing down the pitching staff will present a challenge.

"The guys have had a really good half, relievers and starters," he said.
