FanPost Friday: Create your own 2018 MLB All-Star game roster

Who needs popular votes when we can make our own roster?

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

It’s that time of year again, where the All-Star break is drawing nearer, and we’ll soon find out which beloved players will be making appearances in the game. Cubs fans are already prepared to be outraged if Javier Baez is excluded, because I dare you to find me a better second baseman in baseball right now. Yet as off this morning he was trailing Braves’ second baseman Ozzie Albies by over 100,000 votes.

Willson Contreras, on the other hand, is leading in the race to head to Washington, D.C. later this month.

Since the votes are often more about popularity and less about real skill, we thought it might be fun if folks had a chance to create their own version of the perfect All-Star roster. You can jam it full of Cubs if you want, or look around the leagues and really try to figure out who most deserves to be there. There’s no wrong way to build a dream team.
