All Star voting

Post by Uno on Wed May 28, 2008 8:12 pm

Hopefully one day they realize that fans voting is a bad idea.

Leading vote getters:
OF: Manny, Ichiro, Vlad
IF: Arod, Jeter, Pedroia, Youkilis
C/DH: Varitek, Ortiz

Its completely moronic that these ballots are printed before the season even starts.

Carlos Quentin not even on it, has to be written in.
Gimme Josh Hamilton over any of those 3 OF'ers.

These should be the starters for the A.L. (and speaking as a Red Sox fan)

SP Cliff Lee (CLE)...Hands down, the best starter in the bigs this year so far
C Dioner Navarro (TB)
1B Kevin Youkilis (BOS)...Having a great offensive year and is still errorless at 1B since 2006
2B Ian Kinsler (TEX)
SS Jhonny Peralta (CLE)
3B Mike Lowell (BOS)
OF Josh Hamilton (TEX)...Best player in MLB this year so far
OF Carlos Quentin (CHI)
OF Magglio Ordonez (DET)
DH Milton Bradley (TEX)

OF Carlos Quentin (CHI)
OF Magglio Ordonez (DET)
DH Milton Bradley (TEX)

Based on this year's stats, I'll go with:
P-C.Lee (CLE)...I gotta agree here, while I think he'll slow down, he has been awesome.
C-J.Mauer (MIN)-So many better choices in the NL this year at catcher though.
1B-Youk (BOS)-by a hair over Morneau (MIN).
2B-Kinsler (TEX)
SS-M.Young (TEX)
3B-A.Beltre (SEA) (based on this year alone, I'd select 7 guys before Lowell)
OF-Hamilton, Quentin, Sizemore (honorable mention to Ellsbury, Ichiro!, Upton, Crawford & Carlos Lee)
DH-David Ortiz

Again...

If they really want this game to mean something, they really need to forego fan voting. No way Pedroia should be starting over Kinsler.

No way Varitek and his .219 avg should even be on the fucking roster. This selection is a complete mockery. He should fake an injury so someone deserving can take his place. He's a complete fucking joke. Varitek absolutely sucks right now. You don't choose someone for the All-Star because of their leadership. I don't give a crap what he does in the dugout, a .219 hitter is HURTING his team and shouldn't be on the team. I hope a fan pisses on Francona. Francona should have to forfeit his right to manage the game for being such an obvious idiotic homer.

Longoria & Dye should already be in, not on the final vote ballot.

I don't know why this pisses me off to no end.
