Texas stars for the All-Star sky

Rangers may pack AL; Pitching pretty for NL
Here’s a formula sure to cause fits for American League hitters: R.A. Dickey, of the Mets, tosses knuckleballs at the start, followed by 100-mph heat from Stephen Strasburg, changeups from Philadelphia’s Cole Hamels and more gas from Matt Cain.
Colorado Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez has a good chance to find himself in left field for the NL league team. Gonzalez is averaging .338 this year, with 17 home runs and 56 RBIs.
In a sky studded with Rangers stars, Josh Hamilton shines the brightest. The most popular player in baseball, Hamilton is on pace to break the record for most votes received in one season and should start at left field for the AL team.
Thanks to his recent hitting tear with the Yankees, Robinson Cano should be a no contest for the second-base slot for the AL. He’s averaging .307 this season with 18 home runs and 42 RBIs.
Cincinnati’s Joey Votto is the first-half MVP two years after he took home the full-season award. He’s a favorite to take the first base spot for the NL All-Star team as the leagues battle for home-field advantage during the World Series – something the NL has claimed two years in a row.
