I'd put Machado in the All-Star game before Puig. Puig is a one-,month wonder. Machado has impressed since the beginning of the season

RACIST!

Machado can't start because he plays the same position as one of the four really obvious shoo-ins.  Although I think the AL team would be better with Machado starting at 3rd - or better yet Evan Longoria - and Cabrera starting at DH than with Cabrera at 3rd and Big Papi DHing.

Puig is tearing it up no doubt, but he has only played in 30 of his team's 84 or 85 games.  It's a hairy situation no doubt, but I say no based upon the games situation.  His ML debut was June 3rd.

Puig will end up in the balloting for the final spot and the fans will put him in.

I miss the days when there was no "DH" slot and the manager could choose who he wanted to put in that spot.

This is my argument. Papelbon's argument that he's taking a spot away from a veteran/established player is absolutely stupid. By that logic, Trout shouldn't be in.

I do think an AS should play at least 2.5 months of the season though.

Yeah, the way Pap makes it sound is that he doesn't want rookies in the all-star game..like you said, his argument was/is misguided.

I dunno.  Why shouldn't everybody take this guy totally seriously?

"I can be your hero baby" is an annoying song.   Nobody would vote for him.
