2010 MLB All-Star Game Ballot - BBA

This year the Baseball Bloggers Alliance has decided to cast votes for their All-Star team. Here is my ballot. I'll provide more details on the actual team when the BBA announces it.

American League

C - Joe Mauer
1B - Miguel Cabrera
2B - Robinson Cano
3B - Evan Longoria
SS - Elvis Andrus
OF - Josh Hamilton
OF -Magglio Ordonez
OF - Alex Rios
DH -  Vladimir Guerrero
SP - David Price

Toughest decisions came at Catcher, Short and Outfield. I picked Mauer over Martinez by a small margin and Andrus over Jeter, mainly because I don't like Jeter. Hey it's my damn ballot. Anyway Andrus plays stellar defense, steals some bases and can hit as well. Jeter is good, but give me some new blood. There are always multiple outfielders you can put in, unfortunately for Torii Hunter, Delmon Young, and Carl Crawford, I like the ones I voted for a little better.

National League


C - Miguel Olivo
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Chase Utley
3B - David Wright
SS - Troy Tulowitzki
OF - Jonny Gomes
OF - Andrew McCutchen
OF - Andre Ethier
SP - Ubaldo Jimenez

I almost picked Martin Prado over Chase Utley, but like Mac, I send love letters to him, stickers and all. Troy Tulowitzki may be hurt, but I like his performance up to this date better than anyone else and Hanley Ramirez soured me when he pulled that stunt a month ago.
