Or as it’s referred to more officially, the MLB All Star Game. After reading the voting updates, I wonder why they even attempt to hide the fact that it’s really a popularity contest and not an All Star Game.
To me, an All Star Game is a celebration of that season’s best players. It should be filled with deserving players, not players making it because they’ve had a few good years. However, year after year that’s what we see. Players who have already made a name for themselves get voted into the starting lineup by fans and some deserving players are left to hope they get named to the team by the managers.
