You won't find a more deserving American League catcher to play in the All-Star game, than A.J. Pierzynski.  He is 1st in RBIs, 2nd in homeruns, batting average, and hits in the AL.  Mike Napoli is batting only .235, Joe Mauer has only 4 homeruns on the season, and Matt Wieters has an unimpressive .249 batting average.  The Texas Ranger fans cost A.J. Pierzynski a spot on the 2012 All-Star team.
