The more I watch the progress of MLB All-Star voting, the more convinced I am the fans are, essentially, idiots. For example, in the American League, they're voting the Orioles' Matt Wieters into as the starting catcher, and he's not even in the top 10 offensive or defensive categories for the AL. In the National League, they're likely going to vote the Mets' Dave Wright in as the starting 3B, and he's sixth in offensive states, eighth in defensive stats. That's just two examples, though I'll give the fans credit, they've got the best shortstop in the NL on top -- the Rockies' Troy Tulowizki -- and the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera in the top slot at first. For the most part though, it's a contest to see what team can get the most fans to vote for their entire starting lineup. Given the All-Star game determines home field advantage in the World Series, it is the only such contest in any major sport that actually means something. But that doesn't seem to affect how the fans vote. They'd rather stuff the ballot box than give their team a chance, should they win the LCS, to have home field advantage during the Series. Open for discussion. Let it fly.
