2018 ML All-Star 30-man Roster

This is a 30-for-30 team: a 30-man roster consisting of one player per team from one year.

  • Two players at each of the eight field positions besides pitcher
  • One DH, one extra infielder, one extra OF or 1B, and one utilityman (three positions w/10+ games with one position 2B/3B/SS/C)
  • Six starting pitcher, three relievers, and one wild card hurler (relief pitcher in this case)

I used Fangraphs WAR & WPA and B-Ref's WAR & wAA% to value the players, then I made decisions as to who could fit into the 30-man roster. Players that played for multiple franchises went to the team with the highest rWAR. Players are listed in alphabetical order by position, not trying to denote starter/reserve.

It's damn near impossible to get all the best choices, but I tried to grab the top MVP & Cy Young contenders and no real "tossers". Let me know what you think.
