You guys vote for those that should be in the game, or who you want to be in the game?

I think the people that I want to be in the game SHOULD be in the game =)

If there was a way to vote for a 7th inning Dave Bell sacrafice I would have voted all 25 times possible.

I can't say I really enjoy the AS game. It's just an excuse to get drunk. I don't really have a preference from that perspective, I vote based who I think deserves it.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I'll post my picks later, but, based on glancing through this thread, I am stunned hardly anyone has chose Cesar Izturis as the NL starting SS. He is the NL hit king right now, leads MLB in multi-hit games and does something that Clint Barmes can't do: hit on the road. While Barmes has been very good for the Rockies, he's only batting .255 on the road, while 6 of his 7 HR's are at Coors. Izturis is one of, if not, the best defensive SS in the game and it's criminal how overlooked he always is. Out of Barmes and Greene - the people who are mentioned the most so far - Izturis has the superior fielding percentage by far. (Barmes: .957 FPT, Greene: .962 FPT, Izturis: .985 FPT) He won the Gold Glove last year and I think, right now, he definitely should be the starting NL SS in the All-Star Game, but sadly, probably won't, because not many have heard of him, but he gets my vote.

AL
C- Jason Varitek: The heart and soul of the Sox is leading them both on and off the field.
1B- Mike Sweeney: You have to give the man some love for putting up and producing in that situation. If he had some better players around him, his R/RBI numbers would be much better.
2B- Alfonso Soriano: It's close between Roberts and Soriano, but I just can't take Brian Roberts.
3B- Alex Rodriguez: He's flat out producing right now.
SS- Miguel Tejada: I almost took Jeter, but Tejada's playing way too well in the middle of one of the most lethal offenses in the league.
OF- Vladimir Guerrero: One of the most dangerous hitters in the game.
OF- Gary Sheffield: Not slowing down though he's aging. Bat speed is still incredible.
OF- Ichiro Suzuki: Combines class with performance. Superb arm and right and sets the table. One of the best hitters in the game.
SP- Roy Halladay: He's back. Allowing less runs than Johan Santana.
RP- Dustin Hermanson: Hasn't been more dominant K-wise than BJ Ryan, K-Rod, and Nathan, but he deserves it.

NL
C- Ramon Hernandez: Not many good candidates...his numbers are the best.
1B- Albert Pujols: Best hitter in the game?
2B- Jeff Kent: Carried the Dodgers during their April run.
3B- Chipper Jones: Despite hobbling from multiple injuries, he's hitting as well as ever and a big part of the yet again, first place Braves.
SS- Cesar Izturis: Clint Barmes has been superb as a rookie, but Izturis has been a top leadoff hitter this year, making his game complete. He was already the best defensive SS in the game.
OF- Bobby Abreu: The total package.
OF- Miguel Cabrera: The sky's the limit for him, as he climbs to the upper echelon of hitters at his tender age.
OF- Milton Bradley: The third OF slot is extremely close, but I have to go with my man Milton. His numbers are extremely solid and he has come a very long way mentally. You've seen him walk away from umpires after a disagreement and even held a teammate away from an argument. Will he break out in a big way this year with everything together?
SP- Pedro Martinez: He's been worth every penny of his contract with the Mets this year. Pedro probably won't pitch this well towards the end of the deal, but he's been incredible so far this year in his return to the NL.
RP- Trevor Hoffman: Still doing it with a fastball below 90 MPH.

C Jorge Posada (basically a tie with Varitek for me)

3B Melvin Mora (alright, statistically it's A-Rod, but I just don't vote for players I don't like)

OF Kevin Mench

NL

C Ramon Hernandez
1B Derrek Lee
2B Craig Counsell
SS Cezar Izturis
