    What's Your All-Star Voting Strategy

    I ask because I watching some one literally checking all the worst players for the American League because he wants the NL to win. Would you consider this ever or do you just want to see the best players compete. I'm thinking they're still under the assumption that the All-Star game still determines World Series home field advantage which would make some sense but still do you vote for the best players even though they happen to be on a team you loathe like the Red Sox?

    I look at the stats that are provided, then I select what I consider to be the best starters for each league. In my opinion, you have to be an idiot to pick the worst from the other league just to give your league an advantage. Hopefully not many voters will due that. The "best' A L vs the "best" N L would definitely be the "BEST" All Star game to watch.

    Agree. You want your league to win of course. But you want a good competative game there's no reason whatsoever to leave Mike Trout off your All-Star selection even if he is from the opposing league.

    Not that he wouldn't make it despite that logic. But still.

    I vote 90% for the players that deserve it the most and 10% for who I want to see. I mean if it is a close race between two guys in stats and one is a star player I want to see play in the AS game I'll vote for him instead of the other guy who technically "deserves" it. But this year it has been pretty lame in the voting just because there are no competitive races. Everyone is already locked in at this point it seems.

    There might be a final surge of voting in the last week to sway a couple of the races.

    I think so too but in years past there were usually a bunch of races that were competitive from the get go. Most of these have been total squashes.
