How to fight back for the ASG Snubbery?


Torii, being the outspoken and opinionated man of honor, should withdrawal his selection, under protest, as the team's representative under the ludicrosity of Girardi's selections. 

And, if Scioscia is selected to be a bench coach, he too, should deny the request. 

The scandalous result would, undoubtedly, be seen as a bunch of crybabying from LAofA, but in my opinion, it would be worth it. Having no uniform to represent the home stadium's game would be a baseball disaster. The ESPN and East coast guys wouldn't change their tune any more than they ever have, but outside that phony world, you have to believe there are others, perhaps with players equally deserving as Weaver, and managers from smaller teams with underrepresented teams and markets, who would support our protest. 

You think the city of Anaheim would be pissed? It would be a disaster and the angry's would storm Selig's office with a blitzkrieg of press demanding the process be cleaned up with one single, final question: is this an All Star Game, or is it a fan favorite game?

If it is an ASG, then the cleaning needs to happen now. The how's and what's are for another post, but if this is a fan-favorite game, then it's up to Arte and the rest of the West to sell and market better than the baby's in the east. And that starts with winning. 

Unfortunately, winning doesn't come by selling out to ESPN and the Girardi's and to enact drastic change, going along with the established rules is not going to get the job done. And that is why Torii and maybe Scioscia need to walk out.
