Last Chance to Vote

John ArmstrongBaseball

Major League baseball conducts a huge popularity fan poll to pick the starters for the All-Star game in two weeks. I think it is a joke. The manages, coaches and player should pick the "real" All-Stars. Now they have used the Internet to get fans to vote. The polling ends at 11:59 p.m. tonight. The rules that govern this process are really silly but I took part anyway. You can vote 25 times on a given day. I voted 25 times last week and then again 25 times tonight. What difference does it make? None, I am sure. But it did make me feel better to vote for no Cubs at all! They will get enough ballots from their over zealous fans anyway. For a time several Cubs were leading the voting who had no business at all being first at their given position. The only Cubs every day player who is a real All-Star is Derrick Lee. You cannot pick Aramis Ramirez at third base over Chipper Jones, not if you analyze the players. And Brian McCann is clearly the better catcher over Soto. Ask the managers and players. And Soriano can’t catch the ball so how can he be your left fielder? Come on fans, take the chance to stop these Cubs from getting too many votes before it is too late. Do your part tonight.
