MLB's Overlooked All-Star Team

With MLB's 2011 All-Star Game just around the corner, we will be seeing some of the most brilliant and visible stars of the game today. I would like to take a moment to recognize something else, though: players who are almost exactly the opposite. These are the players who play just as well as those who will be attending Arizona on July 12th but are much less likely to be attending themselves.

For whatever reason, these players are overshadowed relative to their performance—an All-Dark Matter team, if you will (since dark matter is invisible? Actually, this metaphor works better than I expected.). 

In any case, even if you didn’t fill out a ballot with these players' names, you can at least give them some attention now.
