WARNE: My 2017 AL and NL All-Star Teams

Brandon Warne



Twins Video

The balloting for MLB All-Star teams ends this Thursday at 11:59 p.m. Eastern, and fans can vote up to five times every 24 hours — up to a total of 35 ballots.


The results will be announced on a television special on ESPN at 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 2, and the game will be played at Marlins Park on July 11.


So, who do we think should be on the rosters for each side? We’ve cut through all the red tape for the final balloting and just made sure we had each team represented by at least one player. We also went starting pitcher heavy — they’re more valuable than relievers due to sheer innings thrown — but we won’t quibble if others prefer to load up on relievers to get through the late innings of a potentially great clash between the senior and junior circuits.


I listed my roster with Jon Becker of Roster Resource and MLBDailyDish.com on Tuesday’s recording of Midwest Swing — available here — but did make a change after our discussion.


So here it is, my final version of who’d be on my 34-man roster if the game were to be played today:


AL Starting Lineup


C- Salvador Perez, Royals

1B- Logan Morrison, Rays

2B- Jose Altuve, Astros

3B- Jose Ramirez, Indians

SS- Carlos Correa, Astros

LF- George Springer, Astros

CF- Mike Trout, Angels

RF- Aaron Judge, Yankees

DH- Corey Dickerson, Rays

SP- Chris Sale, Red Sox





Lorenzo Cain, Royals

Justin Upton, Tigers

Miguel Sano, Twins

Avisail Garcia, White Sox

Mookie Betts, Red Sox

Jonathan Schoop, Orioles

Francisco Lindor, Indians

Alex Avila, Tigers

Gary Sanchez, Yankees

Ben Gamel, Mariners

Yonder Alonso, A’s

Xander Bogaerts, Red Sox

Another so-called pundit that doesn't think Sano has the chops to be a starting 3b. smh






I'm not sure if that's what Brandon's saying... I'm guessing he's saying that Jose Ramirez is also having a great season.

He's just picking on me. Hi Ryan!

Ramirez over Sano.  He's having an amazing year.


Not having Santana on the pitching staff?  That's moronic.  He should be in ahead of Fulmer or Carrasco.
