So the AL team is basically the Red Sox and Yankees put together with Jose Bautista and a couple of Texas Rangers as backups.

Besides Jeter and Martin. The AL starters are what it should be. Cabrera should replace Jeter as the starter, and Avila starting over Martin. Can't complain bout any of the others.

My ballot with a few explanations.

AL

1B - Paul Konerko: White Sox - Gonzalez is having a monster year but Fenway is tailor made for the guy. Konerko is doing it in a worse lineup and worse hitter's park.

2B - Robinson Cano: Yankees

SS - Asdrubal Cabrera: Indians

3B - Adrian Beltre: Rangers (Has better defensive stats than A-Rod)

C - Alex Avila - Tigers

DH - David Ortiz: Red Sox

OF - Jose Bautista: Blue Jays

OF - Curtis Granderson: Yankees

OF - Adam Jones: Orioles (Gave Jones the nod over Quentin based on who's the better defensive player)

NL

1B - Prince Fielder: Brewers

2B - Rickie Weeks: Brewers

SS - Jose Reyes: Mets - Tough call over Tulo. Could have gone either way.

3B - Placido Polanco: Phillies - Beats out Chipper Jones in a very week field of third basemen.

C - Brian McCann: Braves

OF - Matt Kemp: Dodgers

OF - Ryan Braun: Brewers

OF - Michael Morse: Nationals - The last OF spot was a tough call. Hunter Pence is having a good year. So are Jay Bruce, Justin Upton, and a few others. Lance Berkman was the obvious choice but how much of his numbers were put up while playing first base? Also, it felt good to vote for a Nationals player. I think it's the first time I've ever done it.

OK, let me have it. B)

Beltre and A-Rod have the same UZR/150 and A-Rod has less errors. Plus Beltre's OPS is 112 points lower. Beltre over A-Rod is a joke, not matter how much you hate him. If you don't want A-Rod, go with Kevin Youkilis.

This may be biased, but Miguel Cabrera is the best 1B in the AL. Gonzalez and Konerko are both in hitters parks. (Yes the White Sox stadium is a hitter's park)Cabrera gets nothing to hit and he would have twice as many home runs if he wasn't in such a big ballpark.

Geez, didn't mean to make you angry. :rolleyes: I didn't do the sabermetrics thing. I looked at defensive rankings and Beltre's were higher across the board. The ballot is cast. I voted Beltre. Sue me.

Besides, it's not like my vote is going to screw A-Rod or Youkilis. And I don't hate A-Rod.

And here I thought voting for Adam Jones or Mike Morse would be the one that would send all the stats geeks into a tizzy. B)

Fair points but I could only vote for one.

Always disappointed when I don't see more Giants on the ballot for the field, but that's been the routine for quite awhile now. One good thing though, Bruce Bochy is the manager for the NL All Star team this year, so even if they wouldn't be the top pick as a replacement, I'm pretty confident that at least one Giant will inexplicably sneak their way on to the team that isn't a pitcher. My best guess would be Nate Schierholtz at this point.
