We've reached the end of our predictions series and today we'll look at which Reds players might don the NL All-Star jersey come July. There were 10 ballots cast by the Redlegs Review team and a player had to receive at least five votes to be included.
So which Reds do we think are potential All-Stars in 2013?
Joey Votto (10), Brandon Phillips (9), Jay Bruce (8), Johnny Cueto (7), and Mat Latos (7)
Phillips and Cueto were two of the most egregious snubs last year. The good news is that Tony LaRussa will not be managing the 2013 NL All-Star team, so perhaps those guys will have a shot this time as long as they perform.
Votto is a no-brainer. There's not a first baseman in the National League that can hold a candle to Votto right now. With Shin-Soo Choo in the fold, Votto could put up the best numbers of his career if you can even comprehend that. If the knee holds up and no other injuries occur, Votto will be well on his way to a fourth All-Star selection.
