As the midway point of the season approaches, it's time to once again seperate the wheat from the chaff, the gold from the dross, the...great players from the not-so-great. It's time to select the starters for each position on the American League All-Star team.
As usual, some areas are clear-cut, while others require debate and contemplation. Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis are neck-and-neck at first base in the official voting, which mirrors their similarly-excellent seasons. Shortstop is a tossup, with the position being surprisingly weak in the American League, while fans have several excellent outfielders and starting pitchers to choose from.Who would start on your team, SportsNation?
