So far this year, Junior has 21 HR, 50 RBI, .290 BA, .381 OBP, .949 OPS, 140 OPS+. That's pretty damn good. I had quite literally no choice but to include Griffey when filling out my All-Star ballot. Here is proof of my acquiescence to his greatness:
I think it's a good ballot, but I'll explain three choices. I picked Uggla (16 HR) over Utley simply because I like Uggla, even though Utley is arguably having a better season. I went with Dunn (23 HR) but I could have easily gone with Bonds, Hawpe, etc. Finally, I chose Upton (.941 OPS) because, despite his reduced playing time, he is still having a great year.
