This all star voting is stupid. how can ludwick be 14th. he is 1 of the best outfielders this year. also griffey is doing terrible. and yadi, he is hitting .290 and is if not the best, 1 of the best fielding catchers in the whole mlb. Fukudome is good but he shouldnt be in second in the nl outfield. I think alot of people voted for him because his name is cool. and tejada isnt doing as good and han-ram is doing a whole lot better. and how can uggla be forth for nl 2nd base. he is hitting almost .300 and leading the league in hrs. and AL 2nd base dustin aint doing that great where ian kinsler is doing amazing. also how can cano be in third when he is one of the worst second basemans this year. micheal young and carlos guillen and doing better than jeter but jeter is easliy beating everyone. guillen is ranked the 3rd best ranking for al shortstop on yahoo rankings but isnt even on the top 5 for voting. how can varitek be in second...he isnt that good. I vote for the best not for my favorite. it makes me mad!
yeah non true baseball fans arent smart. i mean the only thing i think isnt bad is jeter at SS. he can get a roll going. i think we should do a fantasy all-star message board, so maybe we can make a whole better lineup than the gay MLB. this is for starting
heres the top 2 on yahoo ranking for each position for this year in each league. ill do top 5 for outfield
C McCann and Martin
Mauer and pierzynski
1B Berkman and Gonzalez (not even in top 5 in votes)
Morneau and Youkilis
2B Utley and Uggla
Kinsler and BJ Upton
3B Jones and A. Ramirez
A- Rod and Huff (not in top 5)
SS Hanley and Reyes
Young and Cabrera
OF McLouth, Braun, Ludwick, Beltran, and Bay
Hamilton, Quentin (not in top 15), Bradley, Sizemore, Drew (manny is leading but not in top 5)
Only a couple are right and what they should be!
I agree that it is pretty sad. Almost every year it is Red Sox and Yankee players for the AL when they are not the best players out there. They get in because they have a bigger fan base. I feel that many players do not get the respect and recognition they deserve.

red sox players are very talented, just because you don't like them doesn't mean that they don't deserve to be in the all star game. J.D. DREW is one of the hottest players in baseball since ortiz went down, manny is awesome,ellsbury,youkilis, are playing as good or better than anyone at there positions and lowell won't get it simply beacuse a-rod is unreal. i do agree with you that the yanks and sox have a bigger fan base than most teams which do help at a position that a player from a team like, lets say tampa bay, might have a guy who is having a career year but won't get in because of a guy that has that popular name from boston or new york.
