We’ve already had a look at Edward’s all-star ballot, and I agree with most of his selections.

Unlike baseball, we don't have half a season to use as a gauge, so there's a lot of projecting and taking into account what the players did a year ago.

I'm big on intangibles and how a player impacts his teammates. So wherever it was close, I went with the guy who was a leader and the guy I believe will help elevate the level of play of the players around him. Speed and versatility were also big factors.

Anyway, here's my ballot:
