The idea of Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game is sound. It’s designed to gather the best players in the league in one place, and it mostly succeeds at doing so.

But not always. On occasion, players who have no business being called “All-Stars” end up at the Midsummer Classic. It’s our duty as honest, baseball gods-fearing citizens to not forget them.

With the rosters for the 2014 All-Star Game due to be announced Sunday night, there’s no time like the present to do a bit of not forgetting by looking back at the 10 least-deserving All-Stars of the last decade (2004-2013).

For the record: No, we’re not going to concern ourselves with things like past performances and reputations. We’re only targeting players who didn’t deserve to be All-Stars based strictly on how they were performing at the time. And the worse the performance, the higher the rank.
