Frer, I've never liked picking All-Stars solely on this years stats. Guys who can put together a few good months at the beginning of the season don't deserve to make the team if that's all they have ever done. It's the All-Star game, not the who's hot right now game.
Long with WAR only exasperates the problem.
Phillips is an All-Star. Bryce Harper is an All-Star. Jay Bruce is an All-Star. Homer Bailey is not. Marco Scutero is not. Gerald Parra is not. Todd Frazier is not. Jason Grilli and Trevor Rosenthal are not.
