MLB All-Star Voting

Recommended Posts

Who do you guys have this year?

I looked at the NL 3rd basemen and wanted to vote none of the above. Did I overlook anybody there?

The Orioles fan in me voted for Jones and Wieters. A Cabrera should be the AL SS, but he won't get voted in.

*checks watch* It's still May.

I don't even look at the ballot until June 1st and I'll end up putting a vote in a day or two before the deadline.

I have a huge pet peeve with the ballot opening in April :angryfire:

The thing I hate the most is that the roster choices are set so early. Theres players on there who don't start the season or you could have a guy who switched to LF and ends up playing 152 games there but he was the 1B on the ballot.

I usually vote once or twice towards the end of voting. I did do a punch ballot at OPACY last Sunday.

For your question, at 3B in the NL I picked Casey McGehee.

Chipper's been good, I'll probably pick him when I sit down and look it over.

That's what I ended up doing. But it was simply based on reputation and the fact that no other third basemen are really doing anything. Hell, I could have gone with Melvin Mora.

I have McGehee on my fantasy team. He's been really frustrating for me this season.

I'd like to see Adam Jones in centerfield, Nick Markakis in right, Felix Pie in left, Wieters catching, Hardy at short, Derek Lee at first base, B-Rob at second base, and Mark Reynolds at 3rd base. I'd like Zach Britton to be chosen as the starting pitcher, but have him decline the selection so as to keep all of his innings pitched for the Orioles in the regular season.

Well it's June 1st and I just did a little looking into how long I have before polls close.

June 30th, Midnight.

This is crazy, IMO polls should be opening now if they don't need results until June 30th. Being an "All Star" goes on your baseball resume and stands out for decades to come. It's bad enough to be decided by only half a season but MLB's format makes it probable that those with 1 hot month will get a nod. They need to fix this. This isn't 1975 when fax machines were brand spanking new. If we have the ability to vote via mobile, this generation will vote quickly enough to withstand a shorter polling period. GET WITH THE 21st CENTURY!! FIX THIS MLB!!!

Entire Yankees infield currently leading in early All-Star voting

In the first update of voting for the 2011 American League All-Star team, the Yankees have six players who are the top vote-getters at their positions, including the entire starting infield.

The six players are catcher Russell Martin, first baseman Mark Teixeira, second baseman Robinson Cano, third baseman Alex Rodriguez, shortstop Derek Jeter and center fielder Curtis Granderson. The All-Star Game is July 12 in Phoenix.

    • Glad to see that Manny’s Padres are likely to get in now.  With Tatis out and Soto being a huge disappointment, Manny has really carried that team.  When you look at what he has meant to that team, he deserves serious MVP consideration, though I suspect Goldschmidt will win based on gaudier offensive numbers.   Goldie has a much stronger supporting cast though.  Manny’s been doing it all by himself.  
    • We had a 9-8 season series lead on Tampa and ended up losing the season series 10-9, losing the final two. We had a 9-7 season series lead on Boston and ended up losing the season series 10-9, losing the final three. We had a 6-2 season series lead on Toronto and have allowed it to get to 8-8.   We’ll lose that season series unless we win 2 of the final three. New York?  Different story, they’ve kick our butts all year.   We easily could have won the season series with Tampa, Boston and Toronto and have squandered the first two.  Boston in particular really  irritated me.   Losing the season series to Toronto after dominating them early would really add insult to injury. 
    • Yeah, it's hard for me to complain about a handful of winnable games in a season full of surprises. I never thought they would be a playoff team even when they were tied, or maybe ahead in a WC position earlier. There's a lot to look forward to for 2023... there's also a lot of work to do this off season.   
    • I feel like there's a default assumption that he's not a great blocker because most great pass catching TEs not named Kittle aren't.  But I've been looking out for him on running plays and this man is straight mauling people in run blocking.  He's easily Boyle's equal as a blocker even when Boyle is healthy.  But he's almost never playing tight end.   With the way he's pretty much permanently our slot receiver, having him as one of the main blockers on WR screens should be terrifying for DBs that have to shed this guy while tackling the receiver.  We put Ricard out wide a lot too, imagine Ricard and Andrews blocking for a WR screen to Bateman or Duvernay in trips.
    • Good post.  For me it doesn’t sting very much.   The team came a very long way this year.   But they were never more than a team with a puncher’s chance at the playoffs.   I’d still like to see them finish by playing a little better than they have for the last couple of weeks, to leave a good taste in our mouths after a fun season. 
    • I would want at least 3 years left for any pitcher we get in a trade.  I still think one of the young Astros starters makes the most sense.  The Astros were interested in Mullins before to upgrade their center fielder.   Elias knows that system so I like that as advantage.  Garcia, Valdez, Javier and Urquidy would be better fits because of at least 1 more year of control.  Javier would be my first choice because he has more strikeout stuff compared to other 3.
