    Cardinals fans stuffing the ballots

    Per ESPN, Jim Edmonds and David Eckstein are the leading vote getters at their respective positions.

    Eckstein is having a good year, but Lopez should start over him. Edmonds is having a horrible year and doesn' even deserve to be the 25th man on the team(.241/.345/.379).

    Looks like Dunn will be snubbed again this year.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Fan voting needs to be abolished.

    I'm guessing that has a lot to do with the Cardinals selling out every game, and so many standing room only tickets being sold for every game.

    Cards fans keep that up and they'll be just a notch above Cubs and Yankees fans.

    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    That's a fans perogative. It's not like Cincinnati has never stuffed an All-Star ballot box before.

    Yadier Molina, despite possibily being the worst hitting regular in baseball(.455 OPS), is second in votes behind LoDuca for catchers.

    I deserve to make the team for than Edmonds and Molina.

    Griffey also appears to have a spot locked up despite missing half the year and having a OBP below .300.

    Yep. And the first guideline should be that you had to participate in 75% of your team's games, or the equivalent # of AB's, for position players.

    Announce the team two weeks in advance, then let the fans vote for the starters of the players selected. That way the right players get picked, and the fans still have a "voice."

    Fan voting ABSOLUTELY needs to go.

    Especially if the game counts for home field in the WS. (Which I also think is silly.)

    Fan voting needs to stay and it will stay. The game is about the fans. Unfortunately, But the Pud decided to make the game count. Now that's a bad move!

    If we had as many fans as the Cards we'd probably be accused of stuffing the ballots too. They have a new stadium, they're going to get the most votes.

    First of all, even though I love both AD and Jr., neither deserve to make this team based on their play so far this year.

    Secondly, making an exhibition game a factor in who wins the WS is dumb beyond belief but, after all, it is Bud.

    Dunn doesn't deserve to be on the all-star team. He should be on it before Edmonds, but Dunn isn't having an all-star year right now.
