All Star Reveal
Tomorrow (Sunday) at 1 EST on TBS.
Who is the team in your opinion that should be starting, both AL and NL with starting pitchers? Also who did you actually vote for and did you vote multiple times?
I voted multiple times online and once at the park.
Most Deserving/Voted for
C - Victor Martinez
1B - Justin Morneau
2B - Aaron Hill
SS - Jason Bartlett/Derek Jeter
3B - Evan Longoria
OF - Jason Bay
OF - Torii Hunter
OF - Carl Crawford
Easiest Choice(s): Jason Bay, Morneau, Longoria, Carl Crawford and Aaron Hill
Toughest Choice(s): Torii over many other OF's mainly Ichiro, Victor over Mauer, Jeter over Bartlett
C - Yadier Molina
1B - Albert Pujols/Joey Votto
2B - Chase Utley/Brandon Phillips
SS - Hanley Ramirez
3B - David Wright/Mark Reynolds - Ryan Zimmerman
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Carlos Beltran/Andre Ethier
OF - Raul Ibanez/Justin Upton
Easiest Choice(s): Molina (even though I did vote for McCann a few times as well), Hanley and Braun
Toughest Choice(s): Wright/Reynolds/Zimmerman but I decided to split my votes largely between Reynolds and Zimmerman. Ethier over a host of players but wanted someone who could actually play a little CF and I like Ethier and feel he has been Votto-Esque for the Dodgers in the sense he got it done when they needed it.
Basically I voted for the most deserving team on both sides once and then went to town on a combination of who I felt was deserving/wanted to see/and balance by position and team. Basically if all else was fairly even I'd vote for a player on a team that may not have yet been represented. And then I tossed in my Reds slant a bit with Votto/Phillips and even a couple of votes for Bruce and Hanigan. Unanimous selections for me were Braun, Hanley, Bay, Crawford and Morneau.
My pitchers are:
AL - Zach Grienke 10-3 in 16 starts, 1.95 ERA, 5 CG's, 2 SHO's and 114/18 K/BB in 115.1 IP with 100 hits against and 3 HR
NL - Tim Lincecum 8-2 in 16 starts, 2.37 ERA, 3 CG's, 2 SHO's and 132/28 K/BB in 114 IP with only 94 hits against & 4 HR
