Alex Rodriguez received the most votes for the All-Star team, ahead of Derek Jeter. Jorge Posada was elected by the players. Here’s the AL team:

1B: David Ortiz (Red Sox)
2B: Placido Polanco (Tigers)
SS: Derek Jeter (Yankees)
3B: Alex Rodriguez (Yankees)
C: Pudge Rodriguez (Tigers)
OF: Magglio Ordonez (Tigers)
OF: Vlad Guerrero (Angels)
OF: Ichiro Suzuki (Mariners)
SP: C.C. Sabathia (Indians)
SP: Josh Beckett (Red Sox)
SP: John Lackey (Angels)
SP: Dan Haren (Athletics)
SP: Gil Meche (Royals)
SP: Johan Santana (Twins)
RP: Jonathan Papelbon (Red Sox)
RP: J.J. Putz (Mariners)
RP: Francisco Rodriguez (Angels)
RP: Bobby Jenks (White Sox)

Reserves
1B: Justin Morneau (Twins)
2B: Brian Roberts (Orioles)
SS: Carlos Guillen (Tigers)
SS: Michael Young (Rangers)
3B: Mike Lowell (Red Sox)
C: Jorge Posada (Yankees)
C: Victor Martinez (Indians)
OF: Torii Hunter (Twins)
OF: Grady Sizemore (Indians)
OF: Manny Ramirez (Red Sox)
OF: Alex Rios (Blue Jays)
OF: Carl Crawford (Devil Rays)

The “Final Vote” is between Roy Halladay, Kelvin Escobar, Jeremy Bonderman, Hideki Okajima and Pat Neshek.

Unreal that Okajima could make the team and Daisuke Matsuzaka did not. You could have won a lot of yen making that bet back in February.

I don’t get the sense that any Yankees were snubbed, well unless you count Gold Glover Josh Phelps.
