I'm thinking it might be fun if we could vote on All-Stars. It might also help with some of the weird choices the AI makes, so that your league is actually using its strongest team instead of a someone random, mostly decent team.

Here is what I am thinking.
- The AI chooses 5 eligible players from each position that it thinks are the best.
- Probably two picks from the pitchers.
- Managers then get the day to vote on who they think is the best.
- The top vote getters are on the starting lineup of All-Star team.
- The rest of the slots are then filled in using normal AI rules (and team minimums if they exist).

I concur with just one caveat - you can't choose any of your own players.

Aim high ... I got shot down asking for all-league DH to have at least 1 games at DH

Yeah. That's one of the things that this would help with. Our division had a really suspect choice at Catcher this season. There was another guy (not on my team) who was clearly better.

If we could vote, we would also lead to more chat on the league forms leading up to the game. More interaction and publicizing player. Maybe even some analysis in some leagues. I think it could be a lot of fun.

I really love the idea on it's face. But in my league there are 4 bot teams in the West division. There should be some minimum requirement of number of owner's voting or else it defaults to the system picking.

The bots could still vote via the AI logic. Although maybe with a little fuzziness added so that player votes could still matter.

+1 But make the votes public so you can't intentionally vote a lesser player to help your own guy without others knowing it was you with the suspect voting...
