Hudson, Mulder going to Houston

Mark Mulder and Tim Hudson already spend a lot of time together. They're the co-anchors of Oakland's outstanding starting staff, and as two-thirds of "The Big Three" around which the club is built and marketed, they're often required to appear together in the same commercials and national interviews.

It's a good thing they're friends, because they won't get a break from each other any time soon. Both were named Sunday to the American League team for Major League Baseball's 75th annual All-Star Game, set for July 13 in Houston.

"Absolutely, those guys deserve it," said teammate Eric Byrnes after the A's 9-6 victory over the Giants on Sunday afternoon.

The announcement capped a nice little weekend for Mulder, who was named the AL Pitcher of the Month for June on Saturday.

"Well, it's an honor, man," said Mulder. "It's nice to see Huddy going."
