It is that time of the year again. All Star selections have been made and the debating has begun. Here at the Full Count we love to get into the action and we have decided for each of us to pick our own all star teams.
So let the debating begin and let us know where we went wrong and feel free to leave us your comments on who is on your team
I am a Torii Hunter fan, but he does not deserve the selection ahead of Ellsbury in my opinion. Now, I only put 2 catchers on my roster because I did not feel that Salvador Perez had the counting numbers to deserve the selection. The pitchers were pretty easy for me and although I do not agree with middle relievers making the roster, but Jesse Crain has had the best season a middle reliever could have.
Clay Bucholtz also makes my roster. Both are sidelined by injuries so my replacements would have to be Justin Verlander and Brett Cecil. Justin Masterson is the pitcher I left off for the Matt Moore. I think this is a fair trade off and Matt Moore deserves the nod ahead of Masterson.
|The National League roster gave me some troubles. Personally, I feel that the National League is the deeper of the two leagues and even has the younger talent. My starters are almost a mirror image, but I replace Carlos Gomez over Bryce Harper. Harper is a stud, but I do not feel he has the credentials to make the squad this year. |
Freddie Freeman is a young stud and an RBI machine. He makes my squad because he is one of my man crushes. Dominic Brown makes my roster due to their hot starts and Michael Cuddyer and his hit streak squeeze onto my roster. The loan reprsentative from the Marlins is Jose Fernandez by default along with Travis Wood of the Cubs and Everth Cabrera from the Padres. Starling Marte is my guy and I feel he really deserves to the nod over Justin Upton for me. He brings a ton of speed to the National League lineup along with some pop.
