I'm a little surprised the Rangers got four guys into the game...I thought one of Beltre and Young would get picked, but not both.  Both Beltre and Young were voted in by the players as part of their picks.

Alexi Ogando, Elvis Andrus and Ian Kinsler are the players who seemed to be in the mix for a slot, but who fell short.  Elvis has been better than Jeter this season, of course, but you know how that goes...
