Evan Longoria should be an all-star, no question about it. Longoria has a batting average of .292, an on-base percentage of .390, a slugging percentage of .531 and his OPS is .901.

To further his credentials as an all-star selection, Longoria has 93 hits (21 doubles, two triples, 17 home runs) and 49 RBIs. He’s also walked 41 times (four intentional), as he was Player of the Week for May 13.

Still, the question remains, where do you put Longoria? Both Manny Machado of the Baltimore Orioles and AL starting third baseman Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers are both more than deserving to be selected to the all-star game
