My All-Star Ballot

Vote for your all-stars here, and write in Youk as your 1B! Here is my ballot:

AL:
1B: Youk
2B: Brian Roberts, although Pedroia has his average hovering around .300 now.
SS: Jhonny Peralta, with Jeter a close second.
3B: Mike Lowell. ARod has tailed off way too much and his team is in the tank.
C: Varitek. He's done great lately and Mauer has been out for too long. Victor Martinez would have been my second pick. Hometown bias, you know?
OF: Grady Sizemore, Carl Crawford, Magglio Ordonez

NL:
1B: Derrek Lee. Lots of good choices here, like Poo Holes and Todd Helton, but I took Lee. Big fan.
2B: Chase Utley. Rickie Weeks has some nice stats, but Utley is far more consistent and less injured.
SS: Hanley Ramirez. As much as it pains me to say it. Jose Reyes is great, but he's been slumping lately and Hanley is fantastic. Rob Neyer recently blogged about how close they are in value, yet how far apart in perceived value. Jimmy Rollins got some consideration, too. And JJ Hardy.
3B: Aramis Ramirez, completing my Ramirez-dominated left side of the infield. Chipper Jones is the only guy close.
C: Russell Martin. Not even close.
OF: Griffey, Carlos Lee, Jason Bay.

Of course, it's still very early. Some of these guys (ahem, Griffey) could end up on the DL or slumping badly by the time the AS game rolls around.
