The fact that you have Manny and Mauer on your ballot invalidates your opinion. Sorry.

Mauer is hitting .455 / 4 HR / 14 RBI since being back in only 12 games...
Martinez is at .400 / 7 HR / 25 RBI in 3 times as many games

So you are saying after playing 12 games well, he deserves to be an all star?

Why not? He's not far off numbers from a guy who has played 3 times as many games. And Mauer is a great defensive catcher. He usually istowards the top in runners caught stealing every year.

yea but Mauer is hitting 455 in wayyyy less at bats, and Martinez is bouncing back from a down year. I think Martinez deserves the spot.

You also have Grady Sizemore, B.J. Upton and Dan Uggla starting.

And Pedroia, who's like, maybe the third or fourth best second baseman in the AL right now...
