u know sportsfan already has overflowed the ballot boxes with flores/zimmerman/nieves/martis votes 8)

can't vote on pitchers

the real question is why are fans allowed to vote for all stars at all. it's so dumb

It is ridiculous, but the all-star game is pretty much worthless overall, so I don't really care.  I remember reading a few statistical studies in college that showed that fan participation in the voting process actually had a very positive effect on viewership of the actual all-star game.  So, for that reason alone it is worth it for MLB to allow fans to vote.
