It's just a glorified popularity contest skewed towards the teams/players with the largest fan bases. Fans also seem to vote more for career accomplishments rather than best current players which is unfortunate. People tend to argue that it's a game "for the fans" so they should be allowed to vote for who they want to watch play; however, the statment is leaving out an important piece: "for the casual fan".
That said, I'm still going to submit my votes online.
Yep...Kinsler should no doubt be the 2B for the AL, yet Pedroia is destroying him in votes.
Also, I remember seeing Varitek was leading catchers in voting?
