Announcing the Kings of Kauffman All-Star Team

While Kings of Kauffman should be your first stop on the internet as a Royals fan, we know Kansas City doesn’t exist in a vacuum.  We’re all fans of the Royals because we’re fans of baseball, and, as such, one of the more exciting and interesting parts of the season is the All-Star break.

Sure a little bit of the luster has come off with interleague play showcasing National League teams to American League fans and vice versa, but when else do you get such a collection of major league baseball talent in one place for one game?  Only the second week in July (unless you’re Jon Miller and Joe Morgan and it’s a Red Sox/Yankees Sunday night game on ESPN).

Tom, Wally and myself cast our ballots for our 2010 All-Star starting lineups, choosing those who we thought were most deserving of starting the All-Star Game.  So without further adieu…
