Watching Dan Gladden write-in the name of TC Bear on the JumboTron at the Metrodome last night, it got me thinking about the All-Star Game.
Sure, it is nice that the fans do vote. But shouldn't there be some actual givens to the All-Star game.
You'd think that the Cy Young winners should start the game for their respective leagues (of course, traded amongst leagues could cause problems). Plus, the Fireman of the Year should be required to pitch the 9th inning.
I would like to assume that the MVP would be a starter, as well as probably the batting champ and the league home run leader.
The Rookie-of-the-Year should be on the roster fer sure.
We are talking All-Stars...even if you did July-July numbers, these folks wouldn't fall too far off the spectrum.
