Why?

Oakland gets shut out on the offensive side of the field, despite having some solid options. Peguero and Arredondo are one-trick ponies, but they MASH the ball. Longo, Trout, J-Gon, Cabannas can all get on base and put one in the seats with equal frequency, and Paolini/Winterhalder are both all-stars this year. This squad would annihilate most other all-star groups. Couple it with the rotation below, and it’s hard to think of a deeper division….. shocking I know.

ALL NL West Team

Center FieldHideki Abe, COL.280/.332/13/57
Right FieldSteve Winter, COL.320/.398/25/97

Strong, but built more on OBP and defense than their AL neighbors. Shaw and Profar can provide some pop, Dixon and Winter should hit some dingers as well, but the AL squad has 3 players projecting above 30 HR, while the NL has 1, and it’s a stretch.
