Predicting MLB All-Star Game Rosters as of May 6th, 2016.

It’s still early in the MLB season, and many top stars have yet to live up to their highly touted expectations, and with summer right around the corner, the pressure could be on. Names like Albert Pujols, Jose Bautista, and Brian Dozier haven’t really lived up to their expectations after being named to last season’s All-Star team, and time is running out for them to get in a groove. Let me surprise some of our viewers and predict your AL and NL All-Star game rosters.
