Revealing My 2016 MLB All-Star Game Ballot

Voting for the 2016 MLB All-Star Game inside Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres, is now over and I am now ready to reveal my ballot for the contest. Not that you guys care but that is just one of the many benefits to owning your own blog, you can do what you'd like. Go me! On a serious and less "tongue-in-cheek" note I wanted to reveal the ballot that I posted 35 times this season just to see how well I did. I went based on stats alone and less on popularity and such so I may whiff on a few of these selections but I'm okay with that.

American League:

C: Salvador Perez (KC)
1B: Miguel Cabrera (DET)
2B: Jose Altuve (because eff Robinson Cano) (HOU)
SS: Francisco Lindor (CLE)
3B: Manny Machado (I wanted to go with Danny Valencia) (BAL)
OF: Carlos Beltran (NYY)
OF: Mookie Betts (BOS)
OF: Mark Trumbo (BAL)
DH: David Ortiz (BOS)

National League:

C: Wilson Ramos (WAS)
1B: Paul Goldschmidt (ARI)
2B: Daniel Murphy (WAS)
SS: Corey Seager (LAD)
3B: Nolan Arenado (Matt Carpenter may deserve it more) (COL)
OF: Carlos Gonzalez (COL)
OF: Ryan Braun (MIL)
OF: Miguel Ozuna (MIA)

The official teams will be announced on Tuesday, July 5th at 7:00 pm ET on MLB Network. You can only assume that they will also announce the nominees for the final All-Star Game spot via a fan vote. Leave your gripes, omissions and snubs in the comments section. Thank you.
