    Well I can think of a million reasons to laugh at these lists….Beltran being on one is at the top of the list! Cano not being in the top five 2nd baseman is another. I'm trying to envision an all star game without Big Papi….not easy to do.

  2. Les says:

    Teixeira belongs on the legitimate list of candidates, all the others not so much. Miller and Betances will be in the game as they both have been dominant.

  3. Jason Greenwald says:

    Rios and Beltran are the only outfielders I wouldn't take over Ellsbury

  4. guest says:

    Some people just seem to go out of their way to make a stupid comment. Jason wins the prize for today!

  5. jason says:

    You wouldn't rather have Cain,Trout Gordon,Jones Cespedes,Bautista,Brantley in your lineup guest guy.

  6. guest says:

    Based on his numbers offensively, and his defensive ability, I'd say he should be in the top 1-4 in the AL. Dude, you made the statement that you'd take anyone but Rios or Beltran before Ellsbury. It was a stupid post. You won the prize.
