Thumbnail image for SORIANO.jpgThe rosters for the 80th All-Star Game, taking place July 14 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, will be unveiled on TBS Sunday at 1 p.m. ET, but that's really just the beginning of the fun. Every year, there are deserving players left off the teams and some questionable nods given to players who probably don't deserve the honor.

Here are the latest leaders:

American League:
1B: Kevin Youklis, Red Sox
2B: Ian Kinsler, Rangers
3B: Evan Longoria, Rays
SS: Derek Jeter, Yankees
C: Joe Mauer, Twins
OF: Jason Bay, Red Sox; Ichiro Suzuki, Mariners; Josh Hamilton, Rangers

National League:
1B: Albert Pujols, Cardinals
2B: Chase Utley, Phillies
3B: David Wright, Mets
SS: Hanley Ramirez, Marlins
C: Yadier Molina, Cardinals
OF: Raul Ibanez, Phillies; Ryan Braun, Brewers; Carlos Beltran, Mets
As of right now, it looks like neither the White Sox or Cubs will have any starters, although Alfonso Soriano is currently in fourth voting for the National League outfield and Beltran has been on the 15-day disabled list since June 22. He likely won't be healthy enough to play.

You got a problem with any of these selections. Let's hear it.
