2) Mets reliever David Robertson will be an All-Star

This may come as a surprise for many, but you got to give credit where credit is due, David Robertson is exceeding expectations for the Mets this season and has my vote to be a starting reliever for the All-Star Game. Robertson has really stepped up in the absence of Edwin Diaz and has proved at age 38, he can still pitch at a high level.

Unlike Alonso at first base, there is in fact a crowded field of NL relievers that may give Robertson a challenge to make the roster but if he keeps up the pace he is on right now, he should be considered to be a starter in the game. I truly believe he has pitched a lot better than some other relievers and closers this year that should help his case. For example, veteran closer Craig Kimbrel has had a rough real in his first season in Philly pitching to an ERA over five while Robertson's ERA is hoverning just below two which is very impressive.

Even though he has not pitched as insane and electric as other star relievers like Josh Hader and Devin Williams, Robertson still was not expected to be this sharp for the Mets this season. He is deserving of an All-Star appearance. He has done a great job keeping the ball in the ballpark and ahs avoided a lot of traffic on the bases. So give credit where credit is due. David Robertson is an All-Star this season.
