Scott Rolen will replace Chipper Jones on the National League All-Star team.

Jones went on the disabled list Saturday and had surgery on a knee that has bothered him for two months. Rolen had next call on a spot because he finished just behind Jones in player balloting.

Rolen is hitting just .245 for the Reds, but third base is an unusually weak position in the National League this year.

Rolen takes Chipper's place on NL All-Stars

      First, I would like to suggest changes in the balloting for all- stars.  Everybody attending a baseball game would be allotted
two ballots,(which would be one extra one for attending the game).  Currently, a person could go onto the internet and cast 25
ballots per email address.  This should be changed to one ballot per address.  There is no need for constant stuffing of ballots
to try to get the favorite players in.
      This year's ballot had not one, but two undeserving players voted in; Derek Jeter and Placido Polanco. Jeter may have had
an impressive past, but this yearly game is not supposed to be based on past performances. Polanco plays for the pitching
rich Phillies, but is only a .270 hitter with relatively no power.  When your media come and say "who are the stars you would pay
to see?", not everyone is from the East coast. The true baseball fan would really prefer to see the best players at the positions,
not the most popular.  Jeter does not even belong in the same room with Asrubel Cabrera this year, and there are many other
shortstops that would have gone had Jeter not been vited in.  Aramis Ramirez is by far and away the best third baseman in the
NL this year  and it is not even close.  Is Bochy possibly pissed off at Ramirez, for it was he who singlehandedly gained a split
in the recently concluded four game series last week?  He has consistently hit around .290 all year and over the past few weeks,
is one of the hottest hitters in the game.
      With people voting like this, the all - star game should have no bearing at all on home field in the series.  But, with managers
like Bochy, making these types of decisions, he deserves to lose the game.
