Voting is going on now for the last roster spot on the MLB All-Star teams. Have you voted? Who did you pick? Do you care?

The choices are...

AL
Carl Crawford - TB
Derek Jeter- NYY
Torii Hunter- MIN
Hideki Matsui- NYY
Scott Podsednik- CWS

NL
Trevor Hoffman- SD
Brett Myers- PHI
Roy Oswalt- HOU
Billy Wagner- PHI
Brandon Webb- ARI

I voted for Podsednik and Oswalt because I don't want any more Yankees in the game and Jeter's numbers don't "qualify" him imo... and the Sox are the shit this year so I felt like Podsednik probably deserves it.... and Oswalt beat the Royals so somewhere in my twisted logic that makes us look less terrible if he's an All-Star at least.

Apparently MLB has no love for Emil Brown. Big surprise.

Am I wrong or are all of the NL candidates pitchers? I'm not sure about Webb with Arizona. I thought the managers picked the pitchers. Seems to me fan voting should be for only position players with that in mind.

And can we stop giving WS homefield advantage to the winning league yet? Jesus what a stupid idea.

I think that its just whatever position that the team still needs an extra player. At least thats what they were saying on the radio here. The NL is short a pitcher and With the exception of Jeter all of the AL candidates are OF's.

Gotcha. Have the main pitchers been chosen yet? I missed it if they were. I want to celebrate Jose Lima's inclusion after all.

The starting pitching is probably better than I can remember it being in years.
