All-Star Game: Count out, Liriano in.

Third hand info from Soxtalk via ESPN 100, Jose Contreras is scratched from the ASG with Francisco Liriano replacing him. The reasoning has to do with Jose throwing 6 innings, using lots of pitches in the process, and is scheduled to start the second-half opener on Friday, and apparently has little to do with how he was hopping around the mound in the 4th in between walking and hitting batters.
