The All-Star break is just about a month away. Fans are voting for their favorite players to have a spot on the starting lineup card. The baseball world eagerly awaits Midsummer Classic festivities.
Typically, and understandably so, the better teams have more representatives in the All-Star Game than, say, a fourth- or last-place team. The better the team, the more high-quality players the team possesses.
The Baltimore Orioles have been one of the top teams in the league for the last year and a half, and while fans hope for a second consecutive playoff appearance, they also hope for the respect their team deserves with multiple starters in this year's All-Star Game.
Currently, the O's have Adam Jones (pictured, number 10) leading AL outfielders, while first baseman Chris Davis tops his position and J.J. Hardy bests all shortstops. Should that hold up, the O's will have multiple starters in the All-Star Game for the first time since 2005.
Having said that, let's take a look at which Orioles deserve to be All-Stars this season.
