2015 MLB All-Star Game Rosters Announced

The rosters are set for the 2015 MLB All-Star Game in Cincinnati and the Kansas City Royals didn’t get as many starters voted in as they thought they were. Thank goodness, because we didn’t need a .200 hitter starting at 2nd base. Kansas City will start 4 guys for the American League. The only other team with more than 1 starter is the St. Louis Cardinals with Johnny Peralta and Matt Holliday. Josh Donaldson received the most votes in voting history with just over 14 million.
