So pick your 8 starters for both the AL and NL and you can go the full nine yards and post the other 23 reserves and pitchers that will make up the team as of right now but you don't have to.

 

Write-in votes are accepted (note it on the ballot).

 

It'd be great if people went back and updated their picks, etc. as we got closer to the break.

 

Feel free to discuss, critique, etc.

I voted in some key players on NL East rivals hoping at the very least it tires them out for a few days. The ASG is boring and waste of 3 days.

Whats funny to me is you picking Biggio and his .233 average over Uggla. And you honestly think Barry Bonds is one of the 3 best outfielders this year?

Bonds has a 1.062OPS

 

I'd say he's pretty good

 

That is a good OPS, but he only has 173 at bats, as opposed to 254 by Adam Dunn, 235 by Ken Griffey Jr, etc... Even Amezaga has 210 at bats and he hasnt played every game

he's walked 70 times

Walks don't count as AB's.

 

Barry is far and away leading the NL in walks.

no whats funny is your catcher (russ martin) first base (prince fielder)

i dont think bonds is the top OF, but id say hes more deserving of a start

carlos lee and adam dunn are ahead of willy too in my opinion.
