Hamilton Voted in as ASG Starter

I have been following the announcements of the starters for the 2009 All-Star Game Starters.  Josh Hamilton was voted in as a starter.  No update on whether he will be able to participate.  I would lean towards ‘no’, simply because he still hasn’t put in any MLB time, but who knows.

It illustrates the follies of fan voting, though.  I love seeing Hamilton play, and I’d be happy to see him in the mid summer classic, but I can’t say he deserves to be there.  It hurts guys who do have all-star calibre seasons, and then they get passed over.   Someone like Aaron Hill who should be there, but might not due to Pedroia being selected as a starter.
