KC Royals All-Star Game - Are You Irritated ??

Postby ayebatter » Tue Jun 16, 2015 12:32 pm

Fans voting or not voting isn't the issue this is a farce and I'm boycotting the whole thing 'till they take away the fans right to vote and give it back to the players and managers. :-t

whateves. It's a game for the fans. it's an exhibition and hasn't been played seriously since like the 70's.

No all-star game is serious anymore. It would be cool if they were. But they aren't.

I think its absolutely and utterly stupid. I don't turn on the all star game to see a 204 hitting second basemen starting.

There was a time not too long ago when this thread would be 6 pages long by now. :^

Well to be a little more serious on the topic, of course the current results are is silly. But it was bound to happen sooner or later as the MLB started moving more and more of the voting to online. I think it places higher on the scale of hilarity than the Mets taking an online vote for an 8th inning song to play every game and the results turning into a rickroll. Honestly having 8 Royals starting is better than other mass vote alternatives that could have happened under the system. At least with these results its largely due to a fanbase who are pushing for their hometown guys instead of a more spiteful coordinated vote to put specific players in.

I'm frankly stunned that KC has enough fans to do this. Some Royals geek must have written a program to autovote but keep it close because there is no way that enough Royal fans know about the internet to do this.

At last update Miggy passed Hosmer and Donaldson and Altuve were a handful of votes behind Moustakas and Infante.
