And these fans don't know or respect baseball enough to know that the All-Star game is for players who have performed above and beyond not just for players on their favorite team. So because of these type of selfish fans a player going to the All Star game doesn't mean what it did 25 years ago. Kinda sad really.
There should be some kind of baseline like you can't be on the All-Star team if you are hitting less than .280 or something.
wasn't there some ballot stuffing going on in Cincinnatti a few years back? big red machine days?
anyway... the AS game is a reward for the fans, not the players.
Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he'll drown because you forgot to teach him to swim.
