He's running in second, 300,000 votes back. He deserves the recognition for the years he's had.

Droobs has caught Jeter in the only place it matters to me. I know people want to see AC get a deserving All Star start but that just doesn't matter to me much. Jeter gets the Lifetime Achievement award while anyone who breathes through their nose understands who the far better player is.

He won't catch him and I'm not convinced he's allowed to.

Funny thing is, right now, on www.thedetroitfan.com, there is a post wondering if Jhonny Peralta can catch Jeter.

Hopefully Jeter is on the DL come time for the all star game and it's irrelevant.

Like everything else in Detroit, the internet is controlled by the American Automakers. There is a lot of red tape and delays in getting proper permissions to be able to access information through these computers. Keep clicking on it. I think it is 14 clicks, wait 5 minutes, and three more clicks gets you past the firewall.

But believe me. They are pretty pissed Peralta is not getting Asdrubal love.

He wont pass Jeter. No way in hell. For the same reason Cal Ripken JR was still starting in the AS Game when he was an average player. Fan Voting is a joke. But Droobs will make the team as a manager pick obviously. And he deserves to be starting. Two best SS's in the game are Tulo and Droobs. And we get to watch them go at it the next 3 days. Im excited for that.

Big up to Droobs, and he deserves to be in this year's game, but shake yourself, top two in the game? For the love of Jose Reyes.....

At this point in their careers, Id take Droobs over Reyes. Im probably biased, but Reyes is a clubhouse cancer. From all reports, Droobs is a great team guy. Plus he's almost 4 years younger, and cheaper. Reyes is great no doubt, and a much better baserunner. But I think Droobs overall game is quite impressive. And at the very least hes in the top 3-4.

You may ultimately be right about Droobs, and I hope like hell that you are. But, we are basing this whole top 2 SS in the game based on a little over 2 months production. I don't think you can say that Droobs is better than Reyes based on that.

Now, which player you'd pick taking into account age and salary is another question.

Either way, to the original topic, Droobs will be in the AS game. Probably deserves to start, but I can't begrudge Jeter either. This is the way the ASG works and it's nothing new. Jeters has long since earned his yearly spot there.
