Should every team get an All-Star?

Should every team get an All-Star?

  1. Yes. I like seeing at least 1 guy from every team.

  2. No. It causes some worse players to get in over more-deserving players.

  3. Potato salad.

    Do you like the rule of every team getting at least one player in the All-Star game? Or do you think it's unfair and should be eliminated?

    You should not be an all star just because your team needs 1 representative because in my book, you're not really an all star

    LMFAO fucking embarrassing.

    You would think these guys are children that every team must be rewarded with an AS.

    No. All-stars should only come from the Yankees.

    Michael Brantley was a horrible selection. No way in hell has be been better than Benintendi/Hicks/Rosario/Stanton. Salvador Perez is questionable even with how bad AL catchers have been, the dude's running a 72 OPS+. I don't care how good your defense is if you're hitting that poorly (even by catcher standards).

    Simmons and Snell are also glaring omissions.

    When the game actually meant something (i.e., when the winner got home field advantage in the WS), the rule sucked. But as a exhibition game with no impact other than bragging rights, then yes, every team should have a representative.

    Jesus Aguilar is also a glaring omission. Hopefully that gets fixed. Tied for 1st, 3rd, and 9th in Triple Crown stats.

    Just for kicks, compare Aguilar vs Arenado.

    Yes


    It's an exhibition and a showcase. There would be less interest without all teams represented.


    And pitchers should never hit.

    Children are a big reason why every team has a player.


    The game isn't for adults who already are fans of the game.

    Also, the AL has 3 Jose's in the infield.

    This was mental.

    Taking Brantley instead of Rosario(deserving) created the ripple effect of now needing to take Berrios instead of Snell.

    Just don't understand how they figure this shit out.

    No. It was worse when the game decided home field in the World Series.
