Pick your All-Star rosters

Basic roster rules need to be followed: 34 players per team, every team must be represented.  I've provided a list of worthy candidates below the jump, but don't feel confined to just that list.  Also, play this without homerism, meaning you put the absolute best on each roster, not stacking the NL with Braves or putting crap on the AL so the NL would win.  Enjoy!
