All Star Voting- My Picks

You guys are absolutely right about Chipper Jones, I simply forgot about him, but I truly believe Robinson Cano will continue to play well and end up having a better first half than Ian Kinsler.

The real pick for the AL 2B should be Kinsler, but Cano will probably get in, if Kinsler doesnt make it I will be pissed, what has Cano done this year honestly better than Kinsler???



1B- Youkilis-Boston (The NL is loaded, the AL has YOUK and Morneau, haha)

2B- Kinsler-Texas (Cano is a faggot if he gets in)

3B- Cabrera-Detroit (Betcha a million dollhairs A-ROD gets in by unanimous descision)

SS- Young-Texas ( Jeter is always a faggot if he gets in, honestly when has he ever been the best a SS, uhh never.)

C- ????? (Maybe we should just punt the catcher position this year, nobody is worthy.)

OF1- Hamilton-Texas (This guy is the best player in baseball, MVP?)

OF2- Sizemore-Cleveland (Doesnt quite have the stats, but he is popular)

OF3- Crawford-Tampa Bay (I hate honey-nut ICHIRO's)

D.H.- Ortiz-Boston (Who else is there?)


1B- Berkman-Houston (This guy is on a mission)

2B- Utley-Philadelphia (Uggla is on his tail)

3B- Jones-Atlanta (Pretty much best hitter this year)

SS- Ramirez-Florida (Has passed Rollins)

C- McCann-Atlanta (Batting .330 to Soto's .299)

OF1- Bay-Pittsburgh (IDK)

OF2- McLouth-Pittsburgh (OMG)

OF3- Beltran-NYM (He is having a decent year)

D.H.- Lee-Chicago (Having a great year, for a great team, can they end the curse???)

I agree mostly except for the NL 3B.  There is no doubt in my mind that it should be Chipper.  He beats Atkins in every statistical category.  I doubt Chipper gets it though because of the overrated player in NY>

Those are great picks. Too bad for Derek Lee of the Cubs that Berkman is doing so well....
