Right: the relavent question is, who do the fans want to see more. And apparently the answer isn't jeet-jeet-skadeet.
That's not even necessarily true because you're allowed to vote as many times as you want. One person alone could account for at least 1000 votes over the period on his own.
Now if you could stop cherry-picking posts and post something useful that'd be great Also check your PM box. I sent you something last night.
You should have done it yourself if it riles you up so much. And please don't say 'I have a life, I couldn't have done that' because you post here frequently enough to where you could have spent that time voting 1000 times for Jeter.
If you can't see that Podsednik is better for the AL team than Jeter than you are obviously blinded by your love of the Yankees. Look, Jeter is a far better player than Podsednik, but the AL team already has equal talent at the same position. However, they do not have a base-stealer as good as Podsednik who can come in off the bench and steal a base 80+% of the time even when everyone and their mother knows he's stealing. That stolen base was the turning point in the ALCS last season...it can be the turning point in the All-Star game this season. Nothing Jeter brings to the table is any different than what any other player brings to the table. Please don't bring up experience as an important factor either; it wasn't experience that helped Blalock homer off Gagne.
