I honestly surprised myself here. I was weighing between Paul Goldschmidt and the amazing story of Eric Thames. Then I looked at the numbers and saw what an incredible year/month this UVa alum is having.

This guy is quickly becoming a personal favorite. He has ties to my local Valley League, and he's just fun to watch.

Another unexpected surprise. He's saved a couple of my fantasy league teams.

Lots of competition here! In the end, I went with Gold Glove defense plus the offense:

The Nationals are going to be well represented, just a hunch...

There are a lot of worthy players here. This is the position which I gave the most thought to. In the end, I think I chose well:
|2016 Topps Update #US297a Bryce Harper (AS)|
|2014 Topps Update #US299 Charlie Blackmon (ASG)|
|2015 Topps Update #US247a Ryan Braun (AS)|
A lot can happen between now and the All-Star game. I'm sure some players will rise, and some will fall. I plan see if any changes need to be made.
