The remaining months between the off-season and the regular season create a lull for avid fans everywhere. So what better than create a little pre-season, inner-divisional competition? FanSided.com wants all the baseball blogs to create “Divisional All-Star” teams by having each blog’s readers vote on the best-of-the-best per position in their respective divisions.
With all the acquisitions the Philadelphia Phillies made this off-season, it might be hard for any team to crack an “All-Star” in the NL East–but that doesn’t mean you should rule out the New York Mets, Atlanta Braves, Florida Marlins, and Washington Nationals. In fact, if there are any positional ties, it will be up to you guys–the readers–to decide the winner. Once the players are submitted and the votes are counted, our National League All-Stars will be set…but it doesn’t end there.
Our NL East All-Star team will then be pitted against the NL Central and NL West to decide who’s team reigns supreme in the National League. And just like real baseball, the remaining NL and AL teams will square off in the World Series. It will be the perfect competition to kill time before baseball starts!
Each All-Star team will have a lineup (C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, LF, CF, and RF), as well as a five-man rotation, a closer, and a setup man. If you’re interested in participating, start sharing your All-Star team selections in the comment section below!
