Well, the annual event of looking on the internet, being somewhat happy and wondering "who" has come upon us. The All Star rosters are live, and as a baseball card blogger and critic, I have no choice but to do what I do best- criticize them!
C- Alex Avila, Detroit. Don't know him that well, but I've heard he's been doing well.
1B- Adrian Gonzalez, Boston. Rightfully so, despite being a Red Soc
2B- Robinson Cano, New York. Definitely.
SS- Derek Jeter, New York. Of course. Maybe questionable, but screw the haters.
3B- Alex Rodriguez, New York. Again, obviously.
OF- Jose Bautista, Toronto. With the season he's having, why not.
