    True...although I've gotta give some respect to any chick who is into baseball enough to even fill out an All-Star ballot. That's pretty hot.

    I can see that happening if she's at a game with her bf or husband and he fills one out first.

    I know in Boston chicks are very into baseball. From what I've seen at the ballpark. My kinda girl.

    Not saying that I agree with the Jeter selection... but who would you vote in over him in the AL? Scutaro is the next leading vote getter...

    I would say Zobrist, but no one knows who the guy is.

    Correction... I don't think Zobrist would be eligable at SS even though that's his natural position since he's playing 2B right now.

    I don't see anyone I'd start over Jeter (offensively).

    If only you had a few million votes.

    A-Ram is a solid choice... Scutaro is garbage.

    I just looked at the latest results. Ramirez isn't even in the top 5.

    1. Derek Jeter Yankees 3,046,813
    2. Jason Bartlett Rays 1,419,499
    3. Elvis Andrus Rangers 1,028,157
    4. Marco Scutaro Blue Jays 807,199
    5. Jed Lowrie Red Sox 576,629

    I'd rather see Carlos Lee and Brad Hawpe in your NL lineup with Braun.

    Everything else I can't argue with. I'd love to see Sizemore in the AL lineup, but he's having a rough year. Too rough.

    We'll agree to disagree on the AL SS situation.

    He had a couple weeks lost to injury, but yeah... that doesn't make sense to me. Jeter is going to be the starting SS in the AL until he retires or changes positions. Just gotta get used to it I guess.

    I'm shocked that A-Rod is out for once.

    Can't blame ya!

    He would likely need a fill in anyway... Hopefully he can get back on the field for you soon.

    Zobrist has played at 2nd base since Aki was injured back in May.

    At the risk of sounding biased, Jason Bartlett should be playing 2nd base in the AS game. He's a handful of at-bats shy to be eligible for the second highest batting avg in MLB and undisputedly the highest BA for a SS in the AL. Statistically and just on general principle, Bartlett should be playing short in the AS game.

    Just my $0.02

    +1

    Bartlett: .362 BA, 7 HR, 36 RBI, 43 R, 17 SB

    Jeter: .307 BA, 9 HR, 32 RBI, 48 R, 17 SB


    To be honest, when I looked this up, I expected Jeter's #'s to be lower. Not sure how many of those HR's have been due to that joke of a ballpark (9 is a lot for Jeter before the AS break...he hasn't hit 20 HR in a season in 5 years) but apart from that, his #'s look good enough to be an All-Star. (especially when you factor in his name/history/etc)

    What makes Jeter stand out is that there are no good SS's in the AL anymore. Yeah Jeter is a good still but his numbers pale in comparison to some of the numbers in the NL for SS's.

    No arguing that... but that's not necessarily his fault that his competition is weak.

    Someone with MUCH better numbers would get the nod over Jeet - that I'm confident of... but much like a championship boxing match, you can't just walk in and match the champ blow for blow - you need to take him apart and dominate.

    I'd say Bartlett's numbers make him more qualified for starting SS than Jeter.

    Not saying I don't agree with you... but unfortunately this comes down to votes and popularity... then stats. Comparitive stats will need to blow Jeter out of the water to take his spot.

    Overall stats-wise.....yes.

    MLB Network, with their amazing statisticians, said that if Pena doesn't get in the AS game it will be the first time since some douche in the 80's who led the AL in home runs didn't get voted in.

    Nothing more than a popularity contest.
    What's even worse is the winner gets homefield in the WS.
    That's flat out IGNORANT!
    The team with the overall winning record should have homefield.Like it use to be.
    You could have a wild card team who barely won 80 games end up with homefield over possibly a team with 100 w's!

    Thank Bud Selig for that brain-fart

    NO way homefield in the WS should be determined by a popularity contest in July

    Agree 100%. Home field advantage isn't necessarily an advantage anyways. The Rays had hf advantage last year and we all know how that ended up. Regardless, the team with the better record at the time of the World Series should have hf advantage.

    Actually, on second thought, I don't find the chop or the Braves or their fans all that annoying. To be honest, after years of hating them and thinking of them as a "*****" I've found them to be an afterthought now, with all my disdain going toward Philly and NYY.
