I think Doc gets the nod at SP but it is refreshing that a Royals starter can make an argument. For the most part I think the voters did a good job except I think Michael Young should have been AL SS. Personally I am glad to see no Manny or A-Rod.

Hamilton should not be on there. Other than that, fans did a fair enough job.

Michael Young has played only SS for the Rangers this year. Tyler is completely right, Josh Hamilton is not an all-star what a pathetic vote-in by the fans. I have a problem with Yadier Molina, why should a guy that has 5 HR, 25 runs and RBI the starting catcher for the national league? Brian McCann and Bengie Molina are way better selections.

In the AL:

Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers absolutely, the biggest snub.

Aaron Hill should start over Pedroia. You can make an argument for Kinsler at 2B too, probably ahead of Pedroia.

Jason Bartlett should be starting at SS over Jeter.

Adam Lind over Hamilton in the OF

In the NL:

Sandoval (even though he's learning the position) should have gotten a look at 3B over Zimmerman IMO.

Adam Dunn deserves a spot, probably over Mark Reynolds (if he gets in with the fan vote)

The problem is every team has to be represented and Zimmerman "currently" is the only National on the team.

Yes, he is at 3B this year. I should have been more clear about my comment. I am one of the board Jeter detractors and was taking a shot (obviously poorly) at DJ. I should have clarified that better especially since I was posting about the actual AS roster but nice catch.

True, and even then, Sandoval is somewhat of a stretch to be considered a snub. I was probably reaching for that one. The other guys I listed are more of a true snub than Sandoval. Zimmerman is deserving of a spot regardless.

It's obvious the US still doesn't care about the Blue Jays, how are you going to keep Hill out? People, there is baseball being played North of the border it isn't just hockey.

No but seriously Topcitykid10 is dead on with the Farnsworthless snub. He is the greatest Royal ever! It goes him then Desi Relaford than T Pain Jr.
