Starlin Castro is an All-Star

Sean Marshall, Carlos Marmol, or maybe Aramis Ramirez might have been better picks but I’m happy with this selection. Good for the kid.

The NL roster:

Brian McCann
Prince Fielder
Rickie Weeks
Jose Reyes
Placido Polanco
Ryan Braun
Lance Berkman
Matt Kemp

Joel Hanrahan
Roy Halladay
Cliff Lee
Cole Hamels
Tim Lincecum

Matt Cain
Brian Wilson‘s Beard
Ryan Vogelsong
Tyler Clippard
Jair Jurrjens
Clayton Kershaw
Heath Bell
Jonny Venters


Justin Upton
Chipper Jones
Starlin Castro
Brandon Phillips
Jay Bruce
Joey Votto
Troy Tulowitzki
Gaby Sanchez
Hunter Pence
Carlos Beltran
Matt Holliday
Yadier Molina

The notable snubs are on the AL side in CC Sabathia and Paul Konerko. I would bet they’re both on the fan ballot, but Konerko has no chance against a similarly deserving NYY in online voting.

Final Vote Candidates


Alex Gordon
Adam Jones
Paul Konerko
Victor Martinez
Ben Zobrist

So maybe not so much on the CC thing


Andre Ethier
Todd Helton
Ian Kennedy (wut)
Michael Morse
Shane Victorino
