Reserves Edition

The first part of this post is who I believe deserves to be an All-Star, independent of team. The second portion will be who I will have to replace because of the archaic notion that every team HAS to be represented in the All-Star game. No other sport has this silly rule and chances are if you are a team like the Baltimore Orioles who are so bad, chances are you do not have an All-Star on your team- that is why your team is doing so bad.

I also believe actually playing the game out is an antiquated notion because we have guys like Omar Infante in 2010 become an All-Star for the main reason that he can play multiple positions defensively and not because he actually deserved to be an All-Star.
