One reason why Swisher isn't on the ballot is because he's a multi-position player. But, obviously, he's the most deserving Athletic to be playing in the classic at PNC Park.

Despite his multi-positional status, this guy should be on the all-star team the way he has looked so far. However, there is still some 30 or 40 games to go before the all star break. I sometimes think they come out with the ballots too early.

The ballots are printed before the season starts. It's why guys like Alex Rios and Nick Swisher aren't on it and guys like Ian Kinsler and Brian Roberts are. Guys like Rios and Swisher will make the team, it'll just be a shame that just because they aren't on the ballot they prob won't make the starting squad.

Wow! I actually did not know that about the all star ballots coming out before the season even starts. How idiotic? I think that should somehow be changed if that's possible. Your right about Swisher & Rios. These guys have been tearing it up! Personally, I believe Rios is very underated. I hope he continues to be underated & fly under the radar & still produce like he has so far this season. He was pretty darn good last season also. I have him in my BBM fantasy league. I love the guy. I just hope he can stay consistant & keep it up(knock on wood).
