    Josh Beckett has not been very good he wont make it. My vote would be for Mussina to start it and Webb for the NL

          i just voted. I hate how people are homers all the time, you should vote only for the best players right now, not your teams players.

          However, regarding your thread, these always start out like this. The Yanks and Sox have a big fan base, and they always vote early and often.


          Sig by me... Hold the applause.

            Red Sox fans have no life thats why players like Trot Nixon have a ton of votes despite being worthless. I still like the Red Sox, just not all the people who vote for them just because they are on the Red Sox.

              Yes!! I just put in 25 votes for all the Tigers starters and a few deserving outfielders.

                If Marcus Thames isn't starting in the outfield for the All Star game I will be stunned.

                  The only knock he has going against him, is his HR total which is only at 4. Fans love guys who can hit the long ball. Add that to the fact that he plays for the slumping twins...he isn't really getting the recognition he deserves.

                  AVG .356 | HR 4 | RBI 25 | OBP .415 | SLG .486

                  He does/did lead the AL in BA recently and ranked 7th in OBP...not to mention he is a great defensive catcher. But he will be overlooked because of the two reasons i mentioned above.

                    I'd have to say the twins are happy they didn't select Prior.

                        Hopefully Damon doesn't start or make it for that matter, he doesn't deserve it. The rest of those guys are good/decent candidates, though some of them aren't the best candidates either.

                        I am a little surprised that there aren't any good 2b players in the AL that could challenge Cano or Loretta. I'm not saying either one of those aren't good but neither is exactly a world-beater. How's Roberts doing?

                          1. Jim Thome
                          .295 BA | 20 HR | 52 RBI | 45 R | .431 OBP | 1.092 OPS

                          2. Jason Giambi
                          .280 BA | 15 HR | 43 RBI | 37 R | .454 OBP | 1.069 OPS

                          3. David Ortiz
                          .263 BA | 15 HR | 48 RBI | 34 R | .361 OBP | .906 OPS


                          That's how I'd rank 1B for the All-Star game.

                            Like I've said, there are better candidates.

                            Personally I'm not against fan voting but I don't think fans should be the only ones that decide who starts. There should be a managers and players ballots as well for starters, pitchers AND reserves.

                            Especially now that All-star games decide homefield in the WS.

                              They should also get rid of the rule that each team has to have at least one player there. Some teams just don't have all-star caliber players.
