It's officially time to take this privilege away from the voting public.

Meet your probable American League starting second baseman, Omar Infante.  :lol

Royals fans are out of control.
In his last 40 plate appearances, he's reached base just four times with no extra-base hits.

:lol In all fairness, the AL as a whole is a pretty goddamn terrible and talentless wasteland this year.

as a Yankees fan I want all our guys to get rest and not have to travel for some fake game, let the Royals send their whole team out there with Mike Trout and Miggy Cabrera

i will say the MLB all star game is still a must watch  - not as exciting as when I was a kid but i still enjoy it more than the HR derby.

I'd rather have a root canal than be forced to watch the home run derby.

People are claiming to be receiving messages from mlb.com after they vote for their team players that say something to the effect of "Thank you for voting for your Kansas City Royals".

I just think the voting should be like in the NFL. 1/3 fans 1/3 players 1/3 writers

And please do away with the Selig rule. Home field advantage should not be determined by an exhibition.

^^^^ This

It is a popularity contest and an exibition game.  Also, why do they let people vote 35 times?

Omar Infante should buy every Royals fan a gift.  He's making a cool $500,000 for making the All Star team.

Omar has an eight game hitting streak and has raised his average to .230.

Not even saying they necessarily have to take away voting from fans, but don't allow them to vote 35 TIMES, and extend the rosters so that the "one player per team" rule doesn't screw a bunch of deserving players. :uhh

Drew Storen and Yunel Escobar are both getting the shaft and each is having a great season so far.

Yeah but who does Storen replace? I can see him replacing K-Rod but not any other closer.

Escobar replacing who?
I don't much like the 1 player from every team thing either but I get it from a business standpoint. Gotta have each city involved. That said, it's pretty rare that a team doesn't have at least 1 deserving All-Star anyways. Papelbon for Philly, for instance. That team is awful but even Maikel Franco would be in the discussion if he played the first 81 games. I'd take him over Escpbar any day.

When you have 35 roster spots I don't see one player one team as an issue.  They have already added 10 extra players.  To me having 35 all stars is fairly stupid.  No matter what method you choose or how it gets split up some deserving player(s) will get left out.  Unless of course you take too many than some undeserving players make the team.  There is no perfect number.   

I believe the votes match up with how many home games each team has or had in the voting process so some dude in Albuquerque can vote as many times as those living in the cities and attend games.   I could be wrong but at the end of the day I am not sure how much that changes things.

If me and Justin vote for player A 35 times and you vote for player B 35 times the same player is winning.  The count is just a lot further apart.
