Rays first baseman James Loney

The Dodgers gave up on him, and he went to the Red Sox in the 2012 blockbuster and then signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Rays. The 29-year-old is giving Joe Maddon his best year since 2007, when he hit .331 with 15 homers in 96 games for the Dodgers. It's always tough to make the All-Star team as an AL first baseman -- ask Paul Konerko -- but Loney's in the discussion.
