The Major League Baseball All-Star Game is dumb. There are tons of reasons.
My biggest pet peeve is that it's during the middle of the season. Why? Because it really doesn't prove who is the best player at each position. It only proves who was decent during the first half of the season.
So if we celebrate the first-half studs of the baseball season, why shouldn't we celebrate the second-half players?
I didn't divide it into AL/NL—I just took the two best players from each position, five starters, two relievers (yes, relievers count), and two closers.
Without further adieu, here are baseball's second-half studs...
