LOL. Not to mention Justin Upton over Cargo, Prince Fielder over Chris Davis, and just stuffing the ballot with Tigers homer picks.

Peralta is actually deserving and could possibly make the team as a reserve. Infante and Jackson are joke picks though. Both pretty good players but obviously should not be on an All Star team this year.

Its close but Hardy has more HRS, more RBI, and a higher WAR. Average is certainly not the end all when it comes to stats. Hardy also has the highest defensive WAR among all SS's in baseball and Peralta is barely over replacement value. ( dont ask me all the factors that go into this though)
