Just for fun, as we head into the 4th of July weekend, when the MLB All-Star Game rosters will be announced, here’s my team of fantasy all-stars. The 2011 All-Awesome Team!
C Alex Avila – The dude probably wasn’t even drafted in most mixed leagues. He’s been a top 5 catcher all season.
1B Lance Berkman – Most people thought he was done after last year. Boom, roasted.
2B Rickie Weeks – Because he’s stayed healthy and that’s awesome based on his track record.
SS Asdrubal Cabera – In a dream, As-Cab told me he’d hit seven home runs this season. Liar.
3B Jose Bautista – “Hey, regression! Screw you!!”
OF Matt Kemp – .331 22/22…That’s an awesome season and it’s only July 1st!
OF Ryan Braun – If I randomly saw this guy on the street, I’d probably hate him instantly. However, as a ballplayer and dude that loves Milwaukee, I say cheers to you Hebrew Hammer!
OF Curtis Granderson – I told you he’d be huge in Yankee Stadium! Just erase last year from your mind.
SP James Shields – Bull dog.
SP Tommy Hanson – Because he tears hitters to shreds.
RP Craig Kimbrel – Cheap saves are awesome.
RP Joel Hanrahan – Cheap saves are awesome.
