    All Star voting begins today...

    MLB.com lets you vote up to 25 times before the AS game. Every year I vote once a week and actually vote who I think DESERVES to start based off their current season totals, regardless of team - slight bias may occur. When it gets close to the end of the voting, I then start to vote for my favorites (usually I don't want to see a guy starting the AS game, I'll vote for the second place guy in desperation).

    Here is who I voted for this week:

    American League:
    1B - Cabrera, Miguel
    2B - Roberts, Brian
    SS - Lowrie, Jed (had to write him in)
    3B - Beltre, Adrian
    C - Martin, Russell
    DH - Hafner, Travis
    OF - Bautista, Jose
    OF - Fuld, Sam
    OF - Gordon, Alex

    AL was pretty slim pickings as you can see. NL was tougher, especially in the OF.

    National League:
    1B - Votto, Joey
    2B - Weeks, Rickie
    SS - Tulowitzki, Troy
    3B - Jones, Chipper
    C - McCann, Brian
    OF - Berkman, Lance
    OF - Braun, Ryan
    OF - Kemp, Matt

    Feel free to voice your opinion

    Not a bad list, but how did you leave Ethier off and put Berkman on?

    like i said, the NL OF was tough. I chose to go with power and high average instead of just high average.

    Berky is hitting over .360 with 6 bombs...Ethier only has 2 homers. It's the same reason I added Kemp and left off Matt Holliday.

    I think I'll just pop in Wieters 25 times a day to make up for the soon to be falling O's attendance...
    Don't forget to use the FCB Link when buying on eBay!

    It does suck some that smaller markets tend to get screwed because of attendance numbers. Although, it's still better than the NBA, and the Chinese influence skewing things in past AS games.

    .294 with 7 HR seems pretty good to me.

    Ok then make that your original post and not something completely irrelevant.

    When will MLB realize there's a better way to do it than a fan vote?
