All Star Break

Jason Kipnis and Jose Altuve have really made a name for themselves in the first half.  Many of aren't surprised by Kipnis but Altuve, on the Astros, is really proving to be a top notch 2B in fantasy.  Daniel Murphy would be even higher on this list if he figured out how to hit the long ball.  he does have 3 HRs but 2 of them came in one game.  Of these 10 guys I want to say that Aaron Hill will be the one not on this list come September.  Just can't see him keeping the average anywhere near .300.

Chase Utley will miss the beginning of the season and there is no timetable set for his return.  Freddy Galvis will man second base until then!
