I've learned that when you let America choose things, sometimes they don't always choose correctly.
...and yes, I see the irony of me posting that underneath a Blue Jays player the day after Canada day. Settle down, Mississauga, I'm not leaving you out of this one either.
The initial experiment to whittle the All Star Game ballots down to three and let the fans revote on the leaders from there went well enough in 2019, and a lot of the time the final results corresponded with how the initial vote tally went. But...this year, there was some dissonance. Things changed kind of drastically in some cases, leading to some figures that I wasn't quite prepared for.
So, as we wait for EPSN to trot out the rest of the rosters Sunday night, read slowly and strategically by a coked up Tim Kurkjian, I figured I'd analyze the stuff we do know, and pit them against the initial ballot leaders, and the choice I honestly would have gone with.
