I think it's silly to get so serious about an exhibition that the players barely take seriously. So I vote for who I want to see play. Good to know that there are others fighting for truth, justice, and honor though.

Huzzah! None of that silly fanboy stuff with some of these folks! What's WAR say? Only those with the highest WAR shall be worthy!

In all seriousness, if folks like Babypowder or crawjo would really rather watch Jose Bautista instead of our own Nick Markakis (who has deserved more recognition than he's received in years past), then more power to them. I think it's a little weak to vote for someone specifically to knock out one your own, though.

I said it before this series and voted before this series, so this is false and ridiculous.

Ahh good for you. Not sure why you wouldn't want to watch your teams players play in the AS game but hey do your thing.

I am relatively certain that most folks who come here would prefer that Nick gets it as opposed to someone who tries to show us up at every turn. Don't care for they guy. Won't vote for him. Didn't vote for Bonds.

Oh my gosh, you are right - and yet... With a four game swing they could be. :rolleyes

All Star voting is serious business for some people. If WAR says they don't belong, then by gosh, they won't vote for them. Some people have a hard time getting over themselves, and realizing it's a FAN vote. I'm not a fan of that d-bag Bautista so I won't vote for him. I'll now send 35 votes x 4 email accounts just to piss off the wannabe purists.

Some people, like myself, treat the All Star Game as more sacred than it really is. I annually vote for who is most deserving.... regardless of uniform.

If it were really sacred then fans wouldn't be allowed to vote. The whole thing is a farce and to take it seriously is kind of dumb. I mean, Jeter is going to have a million votes most likely. If you feel you need to be a purist in your vote, that's cool too. The vast majority just vote for their favorite players.

LOL. So if you don't vote orange down the ballot you're a wannabe purist who can't get over yourself? Good talk.

After looking at Nick's numbers compared to Jose's. Why would you vote for Bautista over Nick anyhow? Nick has a .289 avg. Jose .254, Jose has 3 more RBIs and has 9 more HRs. Nick is a better fielder and is a better all around player IMO. If your a big fan of the HRs and.. well thats about it then I get it.

Joey Bats is the better player. He's leading Nick in WAR this year 2.8 to 0.7. But, the question you have to ask yourself...is an additional 2.1 WAR worth voting for a total D-bag to play in an exhibition game over our home grown boy?
