MLB All Star Voting underway

I think it's kind of early to start this already! We are just starting to see who has it this year and who doesn't. I think starting it this early is a lot of why we see "fan favorites" as the players and not who is the best player at the position. I don't have a problem with it being a "fan favorite" thing IF they would make it to where the result of the game didn't mean so much in the end. I am all for them going to the best records getting home field advantage, but I don't see Ole' Selig making that change anytime too soon. The fact that it does mean so much brings in viewers to the game. $$$$$$. You get the big names AND the big importance of the game. Just my two cents...
Baseball season's underway...
So you'd better get ready for a brand new day
Hey Chicago whattya say?

i still hate that the fans get a vote. its a popularity contest.

if the damn game matters, let the manager pick the whole team. He will pick who he thinks are teh BEST players. He wont stick with his own team, because he would look foolish if he chose a third baseman other then Write or Ramirez in the NL ect. I want the best team, not a team filled with fan favorites

agreed - too early to vote based on production and it is a popularity contest.
but it's the same deal for the NBA

that said......

the game is in ST Louis this year.

NOTHING would be better than a bunch of CUBS starting the game and getting introduced. let the Cardnals fans cascade them with BOOS.


and i'll be dissapointed if Theriot is not on the squad this year, esp if he keeps playing at this torrid pace.

hey, i'll even vote for .043 Bradley
