C.J. Wilson is beginning to understand how Ringo Starr felt when the Beatles drummer, worn out after the 18th take of "Helter Skelter," flung his sticks across the studio and screamed, "I've got blisters on my fingers!"

Wilson had to bow out of Tuesday's All-Star game because of a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand. The Angels left-hander, who has battled blister problems for years, was replaced on the American League roster by Chicago White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy.
