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.

    Yes there is....when a player is not really an all star. That is a perfect excuse if you ask me

    Stanton strikes out 6 times for every homerun he hits and he is 12th among AL outfielders in OPS. Those aren't the stats of an all star. If he wasn't a Yankee, nobody would give a shit about him being left off the roster.

    Yeah, I was going to use Benintendi, but I didn't want @navamind to get all worked up.

    Stanton's a fag.

    They have been underwhelming, you have to admit that. Matt Kemp is an All-Star?? what happened to this guy?

    But that is precisely what it is. I don't like it either. I bitched every time Ripken made the All-Star team the last 5 years of his career. He wasn't deserving, he was Cal Ripken and that was enough for fans.

    I used to absolutely LOVE the All-Star game when I was a kid but its quickly morphing into the Pro-Bowl for me

    I am going to take this the other way for the sake of argument.

    Should there be a limit on players from the same team?

    This conversation is dumber than when people want to reinvent the HOF.


    Blake Snell will go on vacation, he'll be okay. You'll be okay.

    Exactly, it's an exhibition and a showcase, where a guy like Blake Snell should be showcased and not left out because other guys less deserving had to represent.

    Not every team has an All Star. Want to be an All star? Play better baseball.

    If you host the game you get one. The rest are all on merit.

    I bet 20 thousand kids will watch to see if he plays.


    I did it with Travis Fryman back in the day.


    Your wish is never going to be granted. Cuz it's dumb.
