Joe Pos has an interesting article on the All Star Game. I especially liked this line: "Don’t reduce the fans’ role in the game — INCREASE it. I cannot believe that baseball does not allow hometown fans to choose their representative. Why wouldn’t they do that? A Final Fan vote for every team, let them choose their representative. And then give the managers the power to fill out the team. How is this hard at all?" I think that is an interesting premise. Not really sure how it would be carried out -- I guess voting could only be done at the ballpark or maybe your email address is tied to a team. What do you guys think?
