Milwaukee Brewer All Star Thread


Wanted to start a discussion on potential Brewer All Stars to this point. As it stands today I think 4 will get in with +1/-1 going either way. How close do you feel my list is?

 

Rickie Weeks - I think Rickie will get in both for having a pretty good year again this year and also as a beneficiary of a weak year for his position. With Brandon Phillips being the only man inbetween him and the starting spot, I'd consider Weeks very close to a lock ATM.

Ryan Braun - Easy one here. He is a potential NL MVP candidate and looks very good to make the team and start again in LF.

Johnathan Lucroy - In my opinion Lucroy is both one of (if not the) most deserving player to make the team and also the most likely to get snubbed. With a decent amount of big, established names at the position, I can easily see the second year Brewer not making the team, but that doesn't mean he shouldn't. It should be taken into consideration that Lucroy has been able to put up gaudy numbers for his position at a place in the lineup where he gets no help whatsoever. Lucroy's numbers rival that of Brian McCanns and Yadir Molina and I expect him to be the third Cather in for the NL this year.

Shaum Marcum - Marcum has done everything we have asked of him and more, stepping in as Staff Ace while Yoga and Zack tailored their stuff. In the CY Young discussion for the NL, Marcum seems a strong vote for the All Star Squad.

---

Prince Fielder - I am probably one of the few, if not only, people that does not think Fielder will be an All Star this year. With four players already seeming likely All Stars at their position, 1B is a name filled list that could easily see Prince booted. Hopefully I am wrong and his RBI and HR numbers will be enough to get him in again, worse case scenario though Prince has a big chip on his shoulder for the second half (which I wouldn't mind in the least).

Bullpen - You could make an arguement for a few relievers but I claim too much ignorance of the field to make an educated guess with any of them.

Others - Depending how the next month or two plays out cases could be made for Wolf or Yoga but much remains to be seen. And what about TONY PLUSH?
