Kosuke Fukudome over Ryan Braun?

I agree with theshadowssmile.  I have Ryan Braun and NOT Fukudome on my baseball Fantasy team.  Fukudome gets the Japanese vote and all the Cubbies vote.  The whole All Star system / voting is messed up.  Maybe the guys in Chicago started this where you vote on the internet 25 times ?  - ala Mayor Daly - Vote early and vote often .  If baseball is America's past time, why don't we vote like we do in elections - one person - one vote ?

Maybe if they change it to only baseball fantasy owners can vote - since they know who is playing well - only j/k.  Ryan Braun is having a great year for the Brewers and Fantasy baseball owners.

Kosuke Fukudome over Ryan Braun?

Fukudome is very good, but I agree, not starter worthy for the All-Star game.
He is riding a wave of popularity since being featured on the wildly popular sports illustrated cover.

But then we must remember, the All-Star game isn't a game of who's best.  It's a popularity contest.
That needs to change for the dignity of the sport!
