    Could be worse, but a few of these are just a joke.

    NL:
    1B - Freeman (Atl)
    2B - Baez (CHC)
    SS - Crawford (SF)
    3B - Arenado (Col)
    C - Contreras (CHC)
    OF - Markakis (Atl), Kemp (LAD) and Harper (wait --whut? Bruce Hooper?) :wtf:

    NL Reserves:
    1B: Goldschmidt (Arz); Votto (Cin)
    2B: Gennet (Cin) Albies (Atl)
    SS - Story (Col)
    3B - Suarez (Cin)
    C - Posey (SF); Realmuto (Mia)
    OF - Blackmon (Col); Cain (Milw); Yellich (Milw)​

    AL:
    1B - Abreu (CWS)
    2B - Altuve (Hou)
    SS - Machado (Balt) (for the moment)
    3B - Ramirez (Clev)
    C - Ramos (TB)
    OF - Betts (Bos); Trout (LAA); Judge (NYY) :uhh:


    AL Reserves:
    1B: Moreland (Bos)
    2B: Torres (NYY)
    SS - Lindor (Cle)
    3B - Bregman (Hou)
    C - Perez (KCR)
    OF - Brantley (Cle); Haniger (SEA); Springer (Hou); Choo (Tex)​

    Judge is only tenth in his league in hitting behind other deserving OFs including Rosario, who at least is in the "final" additional vote. Harper's a joke. Twenty-six (26) outfielders on literally every team including his own, are hitting better than his horrendous .218. That's not a misprint --- .218 and he's in the frickin' All Star game. Shades of Dan Uggla. :mad:


    It reminds us once again of political elections where voters pull the chain for a name on the basis of "I've heard of that guy".

    Most of the others are deserving though. Good to see Markakis get recognition. I'm sure Baez is deserving but Gennet deserves to start.​

    All Star Game, where millionaires pick up a few bucks playing a kids game.

    The notation about Bruce Harpie makes it a thread about the failure of democracy.
