So a guy hitting .299 with a .425 OBP wouldn't make it?
BTW Ken Griffey (a 13 time all-star) has been on All-star team 6 times in years he didn't hit .300.
What about Ichiro? He would never get the minimum number of homers, is he undeserving of every single one of his all star appearances?

Well none of those guys are catchers. And the RoY hardly every in the all-star game, and often times the guy who is the ASB favorite for RoY falls flat on his face in the second half as teams figure him out.
