The MLB All-Star Game lands in Phoenix next week with a kickass line-up, chosen by voters around the country.  

In celebration, we've created our own fantasy team. We sifted through stats, filtered through the National and American League rosters, and scanned YouTube clips to pick out the best of the best -- with our own definition of "rounding the bases."

Our lineup: 

1. Joe Mauer, catcher
If we're going off of stats alone, Mauer might've made it to the list based on his playing. (He's the only catcher in MLB history to win three batting titles.) But this is the ass list, so we should definitely give credit to what God gave him.

See who else made the team after the jump.

7. Ryan Braun, outfielder
Fairly new to left field, loyal Brewers fans followed Braun (and his butt) to the outfield. It's not quite the same view back when he was a third baseman -- just bring the binoculars to the next game.

8. Daniel Murphy, outfielder
OK, so his stats aren't that good. Luckily, this is a fantasy team based on butts and Murphy makes good fantasy material. 

9. Adam Lind, designated hitter
Apparently Lind and our outfielder Jose Bautista are quite the power duo when it comes to knocking the ball around. No wonder both of these Toronto boys are featured on our list. 

If we left out anyone, please leave suggestions below.
