The All Star rosters are here, and now, like always, it's time to evaluate this year's game and teams. My "likes and dislikes" are here and ready to be debated!
That Jose Fernandez made the team -- Jose has been the ace of the Marlins staff, and he's only 21 years old. With a 2.72 ERA and great stuff, Fernandez has been one of the best pitchers this season. Besides, what other Marlin is going to make the team?
That Hunter Pence didn't make the team outright -- Hunter Pence has been an anchor for this Giants team who cannot even buy a run. He doesn't deserve to go up against Yasiel Puig in the Final Vote, especially since Bruce Bochy is the manager for the National League team.
Not much else -- This All Star game has the makings of a good one, because of the mix of veterans and rookies. An all time high of 30 new All Stars is exceptional, showing that baseball will continue to have bright futures for many players. This game will be tightly contested, unless Justin Verlander returns to his 2012 All Star game form.
