Only 10 days left and no Reds on the current starter list. Griffey is closest.

I have never voted for a MLB All-Star team since I became an adult. I have no problem with those who do and I am not here to argue against it. I do not agree with letting the fans vote... obviously. Just too many starters who are undeserving and I guess I just don't "get it" as to why MLB doesn't see it the same way. I also do not watch very much if any of the All-Star Game. Once again I guess I just don't "get it". I just don't get much entertainment from an exhibition game... despite Bud's new twist about home field advantage for the WS.

I guess it is good that MLB is fan-friendly in this regard (since they are not in so many other ways IMO). But it makes me shake my head when I see about 30-50% of the starters each year.

Please don't get mad at me when or if no REDS are starters! :devil:

Exactly!

What it does is fool the ballot. Each position has a set number of people you can vote for when you use the form but what I do is basically take Juniors player ID the ballot uses and puts it in at each position except 2b which i allow for Phillip's as a write in.

When it tally's it uses a cookie that I update with all of Griffeys/Phillips.

I have no clue. The tally methods they use is as mysterious as Googles algorithms....
