AL All Star voting is interesting.
If the voting ended today, the starting 8 would be 4 Yanks, 3 Red Sox and Vlad the impaled.

I love how Ortiz is leading for first base.

well i'd be willing to go out on a limb and say that the yankees and red sox are at or near the top of the American League in attendance, so considering most of the voting is done at ballparks, no... it doesn't surprise me at all.


the mets and cardinals are also at or near the top of the NL in attendance, and the top of the NL voting is filled with players from those teams, as well.

^^That's what I meant.

I just wondered if there was sarcasm in the original post when Hewson said the voting was interesting.

Its interesting that Vlad Guerrero managed to sneak in there. Why isn't Coco Crisp or Hid-a-key Matsui one of the top 3 outfield votegetters?

Jason Grimsley would probably win any popularity contest amongst his fellow players

Grimsley mentioned that for the last few years, baseball is more of a "hobby" for him.

so if people who are playing in the MLB and calling it a mere hobby are doing roids, can you imagine the total # of players who take the game seriously who have been on the juice??

PHOENIX (AP) -- Pitcher Jason Grimsley was released by the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday, a day after federal agents searched his home as part of an investigation into steroid use by athletes.

General manager Josh Byrnes said Grimsley asked for his unconditional release in meetings with team officials Tuesday and Wednesday.

"We accepted his request," Byrnes said. Byrnes would not discuss if Grimsley would be paid the remainder of his roughly $800,000 salary.

Diamondbacks pitcher Terry Mulholland said Grimsley addressed his teammates after Tuesday's loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. Arizona leads the NL West.

"He expressed to us that he had too much respect for to allow this to bring us down," Mulholland said. "He's that kind of guy."

Grimsley's locker in the calm clubhouse was empty when the room was opened to the media before the game with the Philadelphia Phillies.
i don't know what news is more surprising... the fact that grimsley was released or the fact that terry mullholland is still in the league

As much as I want to see the list of names he supposedly has, I don't want to see it either. Players have to shiting themselves right now.
