Today we offer a double header from Frank Thomas to Scott Merkin of MLB.com:

“They have great fan support, day in and day out,” said Thomas of another Boston player getting voted on to the All-Star team. “There are a lot of big businesses and computer people up there.

Just wondering, could this be a slap in the face of Sox fans? I don't think so but with Frank you never know...

"The fan voting is the problem," Thomas said. "I don't think it's done by all the baseball fans. It's done by different organizations stuffing the ballot box. But what can you do?

"This process hasn't been right for a long time and is kind of screwy right now. Seeing what they did this year, it's traumatizing."

I totally agree with that. Either make it "one fan, one vote ONLY," or abolish ANYBODY voting, stuff all the stats into a computer and let it pick the teams by position (i.e. two 1st baseman, two 2nd baseman etc...) along with eliminating the rule that all teams have to be represented.

I wonder how many Cub fans voted AGAINST Frank.
