An All-Star vote for Gaby Sanchez? Why not!

Marlins’ first sacker Gaby Sanchez is having a pretty good season. He’s hitting an even .300 with 13 homers, 45 RBI and an OPS of .869. He is not Prince Fielder or Joey Votto, but he and Todd Helton are both having better seasons than the rest of the NL first basemen, including Albert Pujols and Ryan Howard.
