So you're an MLB All-Star -- but if you were an animal, what animal would you be?

Despite the promise of Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch, we haven't yet seen a non-human professional ballplayer. Major League Baseball's old-fashioned like that.

But to get to know them better -- and just in case there's a breakthrough in Animorph technology -- we asked your favorite All-Stars which animals they'd be. Lions, tigers and bears (and ... turtles?), oh my.

Some of the highlights:

Glen Perkins - Turtle


Greg Holland - Shetland pony


Paul Goldschmidt - Gorilla


Matt Moore - Elk


Moore may consider himself an elk, but it's his dog, Griffin, that he's fully devoted to.
