We’ve reached the midpoint of the 2016 MLB playoffs, which means it’s time to name our mid-postseason All-Star team.

Yes, the sample size is minuscule. But that’s the point of October baseball. Every hit is magnified. Every strong pitching performance is elevated to greatness.

For our purposes, we’re considering all players who have participated in the postseason—and we’re weighing only 2016 postseason stats. Past performance and pedigree won’t help here.

However, playing in more games imparts an obvious advantage, meaning guys on the four surviving clubs—the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays—are generously represented.

Also, the goal is to build an actual, viable 25-man roster, so some players made the cut based on position as much as statistical merit.
