Bryce Harper said he would give his vote to Chipper Jones. That’s the right call. Jones isn’t the most deserving player on the list based on 2012 performance. He isn’t even the best equipped to help the National League gain home-field advantage in the World Series.
Yet for as much as the All-Star game “counts,” it’s still an exhibition. The game always has featured not just the best players of the first half, but the top stars of the era. Jones certainly is among the latter group, and his inclusion on the NL squad would be a deserving tribute to a retiring superstar.
