After the four-day All-Star break, the Red Sox get back into action tonight when they open up a three-game set with the Yankees at Fenway Park. The Sox are 58-39, have the best record in the American League and are in first place in the AL East.

Naturally, some players have performed better than others in leading the Red Sox to their highest win total at the All-Star break in team history. The break is always a time to reflect on the first portion of the season, so we asked Boston.com readers for their take on how individual players are playing this season and let them give their own grades. Here are the results as of this morning:

David Ortiz: A (93.04%, 86 points higher than the next answer of B)
