5. Reduce Value Of Fan Voting

For nearly three-decades the franchise that was the Kansas City Royals was as irrelevant as any team could possibly be.

Then, suddenly, the 2014 MLB Postseason happened.

Now, fans from Kansas City have made it their personal mission to vote time and again for their favorite Royal.

As a result of this madness, Alex Gordon, Alcides Escobar, Salvador Perez and Lorenzo Cain have been voted AL Starters.

Even four is too much.

Without having to go into specifics and stats on each, the real baseball fan knows exactly how wrong this is. Almost half of the starting squad are Royals. Not even baseball dynasties have experienced this.

The fan voting process makes a complete mockery of the entire game.

Leave fan voting a factor, but do not force it down everybody’s throats as a 100 percent conclusion to the starting system.

We need to get back to sensibility here and divide up the pie between fans, players, coaches and the MLB office to more equally determine the starters.

If each of those four-factions was granted a 25 percent pie of the voting process, then true all-stars would be named.
