Spring Training is Coming, Creating an NL West All-Star Team


The Super Bowl is this weekend and right after that, pitchers and catchers will be reporting to Spring Training and baseball season will be rolling.

In order to get the juices flowing, FanSided has created a collaborative project with the other NL West Blogs: Venom Strikes (Diamondbacks), Rox Pile (Rockies), Lasorda’s Lair (Dodgers), and Frisco Fastball (Giants).

The task is to create a position by position All-Star team made up entirely of players from the NL West. The five sites will go through each position to determine the division’s best. If a decision can’t be reached between the five of us then we will open it up to a reader vote. When the roster is complete it will square off in a fan vote against the other American League All-Star teams. The project will ultimately conclude with an All-Star “World Series” to see which division can put together the best roster.
