  • This is the vision I have for the 2014 AL Central All-Star team, at least. I would put this group of players up against any other division in the AL or the NL.

    I picked the normal 1-9 batters (including the designated hitter), along with two starting pitchers and two relievers.

    Some of the players I chose are in the actual All-Star game, and others have either had their day in the mid-summer classic or one day will get that opportunity.

    As for the actual AL Central standings (before Friday’s games), the Detroit Tigers lead the division at 51-37, followed by the Kansas City Royals (47-44), Cleveland Indians (45-46), Chicago White Sox (44-49) and Minnesota Twins (42-49).

    Let’s take a look at this version of an AL Central All-Star team.
