Patterson’s Week 12 MLB Rankings

With the All Star Break two weeks away, I decided that instead of my usual random blurbs about each team, I will write who I think should be selected to the All Star Game.  I always like to do these things a little early and see how close I come to the actual roster.  Keep in mind that each team needs a representative.  I am doing this based on who deserves the ticket to Arizona, not a popularity contest, that the All Star Game has become.  There are 35 spots on each roster. The starters are in italics.

Placido Polanco, Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee
