Some people are taking that stance after seeing the leading American League vote-getters for the 2015 all-star game. 7 of the 9 leading players leading the votes are from the Kansas City Royals.
The only 2 non-Royals starters at this juncture would be the 2014 American League MVP Mike Trout and the Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve.
The reason for the outcry is because 2015 is the first season that all-star voting is exclusively online. No more voting at the ball park. Personally, voting was headed to exclusive online voting for a while now. I’m not one of the fuddy-duddies who is outraged by the Royals almost having a monopoly on the American League roster. If anything, I applaud the Royals fans for taking the time and making the effort to support their team.
If anyone is THAT upset by what is going on – nothing is stopping anyone who is outraged from voting online for the players they believe to be worthy of an all-star appearance.
I’m sick of hearing people complain about topics there are zero reasons to actually complain about.
I’ll be headed to MLB’s all-star voting to place my votes. You should too! Voting ends July 2nd.
