2010 National League All-Stars… Starting Center Field, Carlos Beltran?

An article by posted on May 22, 2010 0 Comments

As you all are well aware the All-Star ballots are a joke.  We all know it is a popularity contest and more times then not, a more popular player will be chosen over a more deserving player.  In addition to being a mockery of the League’s best talent, it also reflects 1900 technology resorting to […]
