All-Star: Editors make their picks to beat Chelsea

When voting for the AT&T MLS All-Star Voting opened on Friday afternoon, MLS put it to the fans: which players deserve their chance against Chelsea for the big game on July 20 at PPL Park?

We decided to ask our editors the same thing, and we got a mixed bag of responses. Some opted for a particular team they thought could beat Chelsea, others rewarded players for their success during the first half of 2012, and others mixed it up.

Check out our picks, let us know what you think in the Facebook comments below and, most importantly, make sure to vote!
