2013 MLB All-Star Game: Comparing Justin Upton and Carlos Gonzalez

The 2013 MLB All-Star Game starting lineup revealing is set for 6:30 ET on Saturday.

MLB Fantasy Baseball: 2011 Outfielder Rankings

Our top three fantasy outfielders in 2011 are the same top three fantasy outfielders that most other sites have in their top three. However, I've seen all three in the top spot at a relatively even split. In an ideal world, I'd like to get my No. 1 outfielder as the third outfielder off the board.
