Vote: Who should start for the AL?

Joe Girardi Who should be in Joe Girardi's lineup in Anaheim?

Which players really deserve to start for the American League when the All-Star Game hits Anaheim?

Fans have the final say on who starts in the All-Star Game, other than pitchers, but we all know it's not a perfect process. Deserving candidates are left off the ballot and must hope for write-in support. Popular players get more support than their performance might otherwise merit. It's all part of the fun, but it doesn't necessarily produce the best lineup.

Consider the candidates below and cast your votes for the most deserving player at each position (or the three most deserving players in the outfield). Then check out how your ballot compares with what the rest of SportsNation think -- and what the actual lineup will look like when the first pitch is thrown July 13 at Angel Stadium.
