I tried to get this going once before, but I think now that GLB has more clout, it would be a more viable endeavor.
I still hate the artificial importance MLB tries to force on the All Star game. There is no way an exhibition game based on a popularity contest should determine homefield advantage for the World Series. It is just ridiculous.
Once again, I propose we stack the vote to get the worst players we can on the AL all star team. Now, as was pointed out before, this isn't an easy task. Even if the most deserving player doesn't get in as a starter, the manager will just pick him as a backup. I don't think it matters though. If we can get just one terrible player in the starting lineup, or even close to getting in the starting lineup, maybe we can get the point across. If they can do it with American Idol, we can do it too!
So I say, let's compile a list of candidates, choose one, preferably at a position that doesn't have a clear favorite, and vote the hell out of him. Or if we are really feeling ambitious, make a starting eight and get as many blogs onboard as we can and try to totally stack the team. As a bonus, If miracle of miracles, the Padres make it to the World Series, mayb we can guarantee them homefield advantage!
