The All Star games are great for fans (especially kids)!

Great for fans? Yeah, if you are a Carp fan!

I'm actually a Milwaukee Brewers fan, and a fan of all Japanese baseball teams.

I'm a fan of good players, which is why I'm not interested in the All-Star game in Japan. The reason I said "If you're a Carp fan" is the Carp players ran away with the voting this year because one of the games is being played in Hiroshima and there was a big push to vote for Carp players. The reality is the Carp are having a disappointing year and having several of their players get so many votes is a joke.

I agree that there was ballot box stuffing or whatever by Carp fans, and that the selection process should be modified. The same has happened in Major League Baseball, as well as the NBA and NFL.
Your point is well taken.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
