Interesting little article by some fella named Den. It’s hard to tell if he’s being serious or not. Either way, I’ve heard similar sentiments expressed by guys before. They can all bite me and get over themselves.
OK, first of all, he’s quoting Shrutebag, so that automatically makes him a fucking moron. Secondly, only the Neanderthal, knuckle-dragging asshats like this guy, Jim Rome, and Mike Tirico think like that. Screw ‘em.
Back in the mid 90s, I took my friend Liz to a Royals/Indians weekend series so she could a) see a new ballpark and b) ogle Jared Wright.
We spent the entire weekend agonizing over All-Star ballots to the point where, if we thought there were two or three deserving candidates at one position, we cast 100 votes proportionally meted out on the relative merits of each player.
As for women voting, I’m sure there are far more men voting simply using the homer ballot. That’s a much more insidious threat to putting the players on the field who deserve to be there.
Corn-fed Midwestern gal. 152 inches of pure mayhem and pool domination, like if friggin’ Optimus Prime got to fight against 3rd graders. Flaxen-tressed harlot. Swiss Army Knife of 5-tool players. Trafficker in snark.
