Just making some early predictions for all-stars in the NL.
Remember, the rules call for each team to consist of 32 players, and at least one from each of the teams in the league.
C: Russell Martin, Dodgers; Best catcher in the league, arguably.
1B: Albert Pujols, Cards; MVP is a guarantee.
2B: Chase Utley, Phillies; The best second baseman in the league, unarguably. The ols MVP will be yet again an All-Star.
3B: David Wright, Mets; Maybe one of the best players ever.
SS: Hanley Ramirez, Marlins; Great future, barely a starter over Reyes and Rollins.
LF: Adam Dunn, Nationals; Someone from the Nats has to come, at least they have a good candidate this year.
CF: Alfonso Soriano, Chicago Cubs; Great outfielder, always a 30-30 threat.
RF: Ryan Braun, Milwaukee Brewers; Part of the Crews "Renovation," filling the team with young guys.
Jose Reyes, Mets; Guarantee, but will he get a starting job?
Ryan Howard, Phillies; A great hitter with many years left in him.
Prince Fielder, Brewers; Similar to is dad, and an All-Star, again.
Jimmy Rollins, Phillies; Which SS will start?
Brian McCann, Atlanta Braves; One of the best catchers in the league.
Geovany Soto, Cubs; Can the Rookie-of-the-Year steal the starting job?
Carlos Beltran, Mets; Highest paid outfielder in for sure.
Carlos Lee, Houston Astros; May be questionable, but I think he'll be in.
Aramis Ramirez, Chicago Cubs; A very good third baseman, has never found his perfect swing.
Hunter Pence, Astros; A surprise? Great young player, expect a breakout year.
J.J. Hardy, Brewers; another young player set to perform.
Nate McLouth, Pirates; Pirate rep.
Jay Bruce, Reds; Red rep.
Derek Lee, Cubs; He may never find his swing, but he might get in.
SP: Jake Peavy, Padres; Best pitcher in the league?
SP: Brandon Webb, D-backs; expect 20 wins, and an All-Star game.
SP: Tim Lincecum, Giants; Cy Young winner? In!
SP: Johan Santana, Mets; Always a great pitcher.
SP: Carlos Zambrano, Cubs; No-No will push him in.
RP: Brad Lidge, Phillies; 30/30 saves.
RP: Francisco Cordero, Reds; May have a better season that years past.
