2021 NL All-Star team

Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado fought in the dugout and onto my National League All-Star team.

Atlanta’s Ozzie Albies edged out Jake Cronenworth at second base.

The Brewers, who won the NL Central, placed three players on the team — all pitchers.

Juan Soto, Zach Wheeler, Jonathan India and Gabe Kapler take home the big awards.
