Commissioner Bud Selig seems OK with San Francisco Giants fans stuffing the All-Star ballot.
"I'm not unhappy about it," he said Monday.
Selig cited the 40 million All-Star votes cast and the fact the Giants sell out every game, so naturally their players will get love on the ballot.
But it was a little too much love. Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford finished second at first base and shortstop, respectively, and Freddy Sanchez finished fourth at second base, and he hasn't played an inning all season.
"They are sold out there every day and every night," Selig said. "They reacted the way they did. I think for the most part, the lineups are very, very good."
The Giants have four All-Stars, including three selected by fans: catcher Buster Posey, outfielder Melky Cabrera and third baseman Pablo Sandoval.
The other is right-hander Matt Cain.
David Wright of the New York Mets is more deserving at third base, and the fact Sandoval is an All-Star might have been a reason NL manager Tony La Russa didn't pick another San Francisco pitcher, either Madison Bumgarner or Ryan Vogelsong.
Selig stands by the voting system.
"We have built in enough safeguards, which we didn't have in the '50s, '60s, '70s and '80s and even the '90s, so I'm comfortable where we are," he said.
