The National League All-Star outfield is looking pretty strong at the moment. The three guys on pace to start per the latest vote happen to be the three best-hitting outfielders in the league at the moment. Put Carlos Gomez on the team too — he’s fourth in balloting — and it’s looking like one of the more solid outfields you’ll ever see.
Beyond them? Goldschmidt, Utley, Wright, Tulowitzki and Molina lead their respective positions. While one may quibble with any of those choices on the merits of their half-season stats — Jonthan Lucroy and Todd Frazier fans are weeping at the moment — there is no question that NL voters know who the stars in the senior circuit truly are.
