I’ve got a joke for you.. this year’s All-Star Voting

You gotta wonder if anyone who votes for All-Stars even looks at how the players are doing (or if they’re playing at all). This year’s voting re-enforces my notion that voting should be left to managers, players, sportswriters, anyone who has a clue.

Yes, it’s the fan’s game and they ultimately pay the the salaries of the players… I’ve heard the arguement before. But why is Garciaparra with his 51 at-bats leading the NL shortstops in the balloting?

Why he’s even still on the ballot instead of Neifi Perez I don’t know. Unfortunately, it looks like the Neifi! write-in campaign isn’t working.

This definitely a situation where democracy is NOT working.
