Individual stats, value to the team, fan voting and the fact that Red Sox skipper John Farrell will be the manager of the AL squad all factor into play when ranking Boston's best candidates for the Midsummer Classic.  While it'll be a big surprise if more than one or two Red Sox are selected for the All-Star Game in Minneapolis, here are the team's five most likely options.
