    AL NL sabermetric all star teams

    If you took away fan voting and went strictly by the numbers up to this point who should be the starters on the AL and NL all star teams this year?

    That's a lot of work. Lincecum vs. Greinke though.

    Have a hard time believing Hawpe and Braun with their steel glove and all.

    Braun is an above average left fielder. I don't get how people thing he's terrible defensively. I don't cringe on balls hit his way like you would have to with guys like Carlos Lee and Adam Dunn.

    Yeah Braun isn't a terrible LF, strong arm, mediocre range...with his bat it doesn't matter too much.

    Defense. Zimmerman is at a 3.1 WAR right now, Sandoval 2.7.

    Sandoval's .423 wOBA* more then makes up the difference(Zimmerman is .369)

    WAR includes both hitting and defense.

    And this is based on Sabermetrics how?

    I understand that people have their own opinions, but this a specific thread asking for sabermetrics teams.

    And I refuse to vote for Kinsler until he puts up an OPS of over .664 on the road.
