    $15,000 bonus for players who get the most votes for the All-Star game

    Is this really an incentive? $15k is a drop in the bucket for these guys.

    It is a drop in the bucket for these guys, but it could be a real god-send for their favorite charity. MLB should have the good sense to award the bonuses to charity of player's choice.

    That's a lot of hot dogs...
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    $15000 is pretty insane, not gonna lie! I know that betting sites are going crazy over this event. I can't wait to see the lucky winner although they will probably get some major backlash, as it always happens when someone wins a big prize.

    If I read correctly it's for the top vote getter at each position.
