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.

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