This shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone, but Robinson Cano will be starting at second base for the AL for the fourth straight season. For those who are shocked, I’m not sure what you’ve been watching this season. Cano is easily the best second baseman in the AL and arguably the best in baseball.
Cano is off to a fantastic start and could hit more than 40 home runs for the first time in his career if he continues at his current pace. It’s nearly certain he’ll top his career high of 33 long balls in a seasonWholesale nfl Nike Jerseys,Jerseys For sale Cheap
The other second baseman on the bench for the AL is a tough decision. In my eyes, there are three great candidates: Ian Kinsler, Dustin Pedroia and Jose Altuve. Right off the bat, Altuve is on the team. He’s had a great year thus far, and the Houston Astros need a representative. It must be him.
So the third spot is between Kinsler and Pedroia. Kinsler has been a good power hitter, but Pedroia has been better overall. Both are very talented players who would be on the team if the AL were taking four second basemen—which I don’t think is likely. In the end, I think Pedroia gets the spot.
