Sunday, the All-Star Game selections will be announced and right now Lance Berkman looks like a sure thing to start at first base. But ESPN decided it wanted to name its own All-Star starters today and gathered 32 of its own for a vote. Some are writers, some former players.

When it came down to first base National League, the vote was nearly unanimous. Lance is ESPN's All-Star first baseman. He received 27 of the 32 votes. Albert Pujols got three and San Diego's Adrian Gonzalez two.
