Might be time to change selection process
Meanwhile, while those two guys are sitting at home watching the game, Jimmy Rollins gets to play despite only hitting .269 with seven homers? That's ridiculous. Of course, I'm still wondering why the Philadelphia Phillies received as many All-Star choices as they did while the Washington Nationals didn't receive one for a position player. It makes no sense that one of the hottest teams in both leagues doesn't have a representative in the regular lineup. Personally I'd love to see how many times a last place team has had three positional All-Stars in the same year that a first place team has none.
After looking at the voting this season it may be time to change something with the voting. My first thought is that the players should have a larger say in who makes it since they really know who the true "All-Stars" are, but that won't work because the players aren't voting now.
