The MLB All Star Game will take place next week and rosters were announced on Sunday evening. The National League squad will have four members from each of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Milwaukee Brewers, Cincinnati Reds, and St. Louis Cardinals.
The starters, as voted on by the fans are …

2B: Chase Utley, Philadelphia
3B: Aramis Ramirez, Milwaukee
SS: Troy Tulowitzki, Colorado

Tulowitzki, with just over 5.3 Million votes, led all players in the National League but was still third overall.
The NL reserves include …
