Every time I visit the A's website, an annoying voice tells me to "vote early and often" for my favorite A's players to make the All Star team. However, I have been unable to do so (even though I know the system is a joke- fans should be allowed to vote ONCE, in my opinion).
Of course, Harden deserves to be on the team, but that's Mr. Francona's decision, but it's a pretty sad day when you can't vote for any of your guys with a clear conscience. It's wrong that Chavy has never made the team, but he doesn't get my vote this year. I could homer-ize and vote for Kotsay, but with Damon having the season he's having, it would be disingenuous for me to do so.
I'm not sure this deserved a diary, but I'm posting it anyway. Here's to hoping they change my mind in the next month. Let me finish by saying this isn't supposed to be a "negative" diary, just an honest observation.
