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.
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?
