The Stars Are Out Early

MLB.com has opened up balloting for the 2007 All-Star Game (you know, the one that counts). My first thought was, "isn't it a bit early for this?"

But after thinking about it, I decided that it's not. Any knowledgeable fan and most of the casual ones already know who the best players in the game are. If I had gone ahead and cast a vote today, chances are it would be little different from the one I would cast on June 20. The worst All-Star votes are not the ones for the star player who is experiencing a down year, or even the guy who is past his prime. It's the ones for the player who was lucky enough to have the hottest two months of his life in April and May.

Vote early and vote often!
