Thornton is one of the best relievers in baseball, he deserved to be on the team.

Rios deserved to be on it, too, over guys like Swisher, Hunter, Bautista, and Wells, but the players made the decision there so Rios' reputation may have hurt him.

Don't know, but the "players vote" also includes managers and coaches throughout the league as well.

Youkilis got robbed, and so (to lesser extent) did Konerko.

I know when the voting starts, but the voting is based on how you do for the first half of the year, not how you do from when voting starts until when it ends.

I thought the voting was based on who the best players are? How you come to that conclusion is up to you.

I disagree. It's not about who the best players are, it's about which players played the best during the first half of the year. If it were about who the best players are, the argument that Strasburg shouldn't make it due to having only 6 starts holds no water, because it wouldn't matter, as long as you believe he's one of the best players in the NL.

Yeah, as a ChiSox fan, I wanted to see Paulie win it, but I would have had no problems with Youk. I'm disappointed with Swisher winning.

Rios should def be in, but it's just one of many bad choices.
