I'll do the AL today, and the NL tomorrow.
I'm going to be honest - the list of first basemen doesn't impress me much so far. I have to give the nod to the future Hall of Famer:
|2017 Topps Heritage #364 Miguel Cabrera (AS)|
Second base has a few more candidates. I'm hoping personal favorite Dustin Pedroia has a good enough run to make the bench, but for now, my vote goes to:
|2017 Topps Heritage #370 Jose Altuve (AS)|
No contest here:
|2016 Topps Update #US275 Francisco Lindor (AS)|
OK, I was a little surprised here. I thought Machado would be a stronger candidate, but he's had a slow start. Here's an unexpected yet deserving vote:
|2017 Topps - 1987 Topps Baseball #87-16 Miguel Sano (FS)|
Another no brainer, but the McCanns are having decent seasons.
|2016 Topps Update #US206a Salvador Perez (AS)|
It feels weird not being able to vote for Big Papi, but there's a worthy successor:
|2015 Topps Update #US383a Nelson Cruz (AS)|
I would love to just check the 3 Red Sox outfielders here, but let's be reasonable:
|2017 Topps Heritage #363 Mike Trout (AS)|
|2017 Topps Chicago White Sox #CHW-13 Avisail Garcia|
|2017 Topps #287a Aaron Judge (RC)|
Also considering: Mookie Betts, Michael Brantley, Steven Sousa Jr
So those are my AL picks, for now. Will any of them falter in the next month and a half?
