They did pretty well. Arguably should have been Jose Ramirez instead of Machado and Ryu instead of deGrom but those choices are defensible.

Salvador Perez was a surprise to me, I did not realize he had a .633 SLG and 161 OPS+. While drawing only 3 walks for the season. I guess anything can happen in 60 games (or in his case, 37 games).

#1 yeah I probably would have had Ryu on the first team instead of Fried (who had only 56 IP, which is a 151 IP pace for a full season). But both Ryu and Ramirez made the second team so it’s hard to complain.

I was unfamiliar with Dinelson Lamet — he had a very impressive season.

I wish they could have found a spot for Dominic Smith but I can’t really argue he was better than any of the OF or 1B on the team, and he only played 5 games at DH (and even there, it’s at best a tie between him and Nelson Cruz, the DH on the second team).

Devin Williams seemed like a first teamer over Hendriks, but that's quibbling.

Seems to be a pretty young team for the most part

If the All-MLB team isn't "star-studded", the game is in serious, serious trouble . . .
