Poll: Trying To Find The Royals All-Star

The past four consecutive years, a Royals pitcher has been the club's All-Star representative. It's quite possible -- may be even likely -- that could change this year.

↵

After going from Mark Redman to Gil Meche to Joakim Soria to Zack Greinke, the Royals All-Star candidates are likely one of the following: Billy Butler, David DeJesus and Joakim Soria.

↵

Butler is having a solid year and his selection would be a bit of a surprise, I think. DeJesus, on the other hand, should be the favorite. He's on track or his best career as a pro. Meanwhile, Soria is quietly putting up another solid season so he could see a repeat of 2008 when he was selected.

As of now, no Royal is eligible via the fan voting so A.L. manager Joe Girardi will most likely be selecting the player.

So, who will it be?
