All-Star Game 2012: American League Starting Lineup

It's the day before the 2012 MLB All-Star Game, meaning it's the day we find out all about the respective leagues' starting lineups. I don't think I need to tell you that what follows is absolutely inconsequential, completely insignificant, and if you take issue with anything in here and try to argue about it you are doing it wrong. You are doing sports wrong. This is an All-Star Game. This is a starting lineup for an All-Star Game. This is as newsworthy as somebody's status update that gosh it sure is great to see the family after so many weeks, what a wonderful Saturday on the back patio! Here is the American League starting lineup, as built by the voters and as arranged by Ron Washington.

Derek Jeter, SS
Robinson Cano, 2B
Josh Hamilton, LF
Jose Bautista, RF
Prince Fielder, 1B
Adrian Beltre, 3B
David Ortiz, DH
Mike Napoli, C
Curtis Granderson, CF

Justin Verlander, SP

Boy, what an outstanding starting lineup that is, with Curtis Granderson batting all the way down in ninth. It's almost as if this is a starting lineup of All-Stars.
