The Rays Tank: All Star Edition

Voting for the All-Star game ended last night. This should be the fifth straight year the Rays receive more than the MLB mandated one representative per team. Let's take a look at the Rays' selections over that time.

2008:

Scott Kazmir

Dioner Navarro

Evan Longoria

2009:

Carlos Pena

Evan Longoria

Carl Crawford

Jason Bartlett

Ben Zobrist

2010:

Evan Longoria

Carl Crawford

David Price

Rafael Soriano

2011:

Matt Joyce

David Price

James Shields

There are two players that look like locks from this year's team: David Price and Fernando Rodney. As much as we don't like talking about wins Price has 10 of them, which should guarantee him a selection. Rodney has arguably been the second best reliever in the American League behind Joe Nathan. There's an outside chance that Matt Joyce gets selected as a reserve, though Ben Zobrist and his .374 OBP certainly deserve consideration. Who would you like to see get in?
