With the All Star weekend fast approaching and voting well underway, there are still many positions with massive debates over who should be starting them. In the NL especially where the voting hasn’t been a joke and where there isn’t a team who was 8 of the 9 starters the votes are close, especially in the infield.
Does Justin Turner fit into this list with the likes of Dee Gordon, Jhonny Peralta, Todd Frazier and Brandon Crawford? In my eyes he should be on the NL’s list and even with a chance at starting on July 14 in The Great American Ballpark.
Not only has he recently been promoted to the third spot in the LA line up and even overtaken the hot Adrian Gonzalez (who is 2nd on the 1st base voting) he has also had a career best year in home runs and only 15 RBIs off his best with half the season to go.
