The Major League all-star break is finally upon us with your Los Angeles Angels sending four representatives to Kansas City. Angels All-Star's will of course be rookie sensation Mike Trout, slugger Mark Trumbo (who will also participate in the home-run derby), starting pitchers C.J. Wilson and Jered Weaver. This will be Weaver's third consecutive appearance; he was the starting pitcher in the 2011 All-Star Game.

 

With that introduction out of the way the staff writers here at LAAI have put together our 2012 All-Star picks and half season award winners.
