If All Stars are selected by what you've done in the first half of the year, then the SF Giants Vogelsong deserves it. With Boche managing, I wonder if the Giants will get three pitchers on the team. Lincecum, Wilson and Vogelsong.
My American League All Stars: catcher - Avila 1st - Gonzalez 2nd - Cano SS - Peralta 3B - Rodriguez OF - Bautista OF - Granderson OF - Ellsbury
It looks like Russell Martin and Derek Jeter will be the top vote-getters for catcher and shortstop, respectively, and that's a shame. Alex Avila is better than Russell Martin in every aspect of the game. He hits for a much higher average with more power, and he's better defensively with a higher caught stealing percentage. Derek Jeter has had a great career, but he was one of the worst shortstops in the league this season even before he got injured. He has only 12 extra-base hits this season, and his sloth-like reflexes at shortstop have cost the Yankees wins.
