American League First Basemen
It wonít be easy for Prince Fielder to start at first base for the AL for the second consecutive season, but heís certainly making a case for it. His average hasnít been too impressive, but heís still being productive with his power swing. He might get the most votes among his competition, but I donít think he deserves it.
Baltimore's Chris Davis deserves to get the start in New York. Davis got off to a fantastic start to the seasonódriving in 16 runs in the first four gamesóand hasnít let up since.nike 2012 jerseys, Nike nfl jerseys cheap His offensive numbers are much better than Fielder's, and there really shouldnít be an argument over the matter.
There is another player in this conversation, but he is probably a non-factor, Edwin Encarnacion. He has played the majority of the season at first base, but he is listed on the ballot as a designated hitter. He has been playing very well this season but will likely be the ALís starter who doesnít end up playing the field.
This means that the main duel is between Fielder and Davis. Like I said, Fielder will likely get more votes from the fans, but Davis has played better. Ultimately, both will be on the AL roster. Who starts and who comes off the bench is up to you.
