2. The sad part is that anyone cares at all.
Edited on Thu Jul-09-09 09:41 PM by MrSlayer
The all-star game is a joke. You have to take at least one player from every team even if there are players far superior on other teams being left out. It's just a dumb popularity contest and the extra player vote is even dumber. Hell, Jimmy Rollins almost got voted in on the regular ballot and he's barely batting over .200.

Edit: And furthermore, acting as if those who are stuffing the box are doing anything other than what MLB wants them to do is also ridiculous. They want you to do it. They set it up that way specifically so you can vote over and over.
