MLB "Cancels" 60-65 Million All-Star Ballots

Just as Major League Baseball is trying to deal with the CardinalGate hacking scandal, another may be on the horizon. MLB Advanced Media CEO Bob Bowman announced that baseball will be canceling 60-65 million All-Star ballots cast online. Said Bowman to Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports, "I’m not saying we bat 1.000. But it’s between 60 and 65 million votes that have been canceled. We don’t really trumpet it because if someone thinks they’re getting away with it, they’ll try to again." Controversy has swirled around this year's All-Star selections as Kansas City Royals players are slated to occupy eight of the nine starting positions at the July 14th gala in Cincinnati. Hey, maybe Dustin Pedroia still has a chance to make it after all.
