    Maybe 2 innings. Either way they're not going to play in more real games if they don't go.

    The travel. The need to be places for media. The All Star Game is not two day off. I'd rather the Yankees all had 4 full days off to relax and recharge.

    No stupid All Star Game.

    I vote against the All-Star game. The moment Pete Rose ran down Ray Fosse, I realized how stupid it was. Now itís jjust four painful days without baseball, right when things are getting interesting.

    If no ASG, I seriously doubt that you would even see the mid-season break that it provides. While I agree that no player that has an injury should play, I have no issue with players participating in the ASG.

    My ballot would include Voit, DJL, Torres, Sanchez and Urshela. On the pitching side, definitely German.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    The ASG was a big deal back in the 60s and 70s. If you wanted to see stars on other teams you had the game of the week, This Week in Baseball, and baseball cards. Today you can see whoever you want whenever you want, which makes the game almost meaningless.
    Let the kids play.

    Correct. But since there is a break I don't want any Yankee having to travel or participate in media events or having to sit through a very stupid Home Run Derby or have to participate in any way shape or form in a useless exhibition game. I'd rather them just rest and relax, and get mentally prepared for the second half of the season and a march towards a championship. I want to be able to look into each and every Yankee Player's eyes and see that they are mentally strong.

    Doesn't one have to go, by rule? Is that, perhaps, why Kendrys Morales is still on the roster?

    I'm pretty sure if the single player declines, a substitute is immediately designated, and they will keep going until they get someone. Thus the Morales gambit makes perfect sense, if all the others are on board.

    Maybe only 3 Yankees make it this season. Sanchez, Chapman and German.

    Just name one of the starting pitchers.....whoever gets the start in the last game before the break, so they're not expected to play.

    Like some others I rather they all decline & go home & rest....

    I see Voit wants to be in the HR derby. That's another I rather them not do but I understand when your not making much $$ the chance at a million is hard to pass up. The other prize $$ has been increased to..

    Sanchez, Torres get voted in as starters, DJLM makes the bench as does Chapman. I'm hoping German doesn't make it but who knows. Voit is the outside guy, he's putting up good numbers but might also make the bench.
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    It's an anachronism and time has passed it by. They should pull the plug on it. Just my two cents.
