No all-star berth for Lin? I smell racism.

Well, the fan voting this year was a complete farce - Lin didn't even make the top 10 in CL OF votes. Regarding CL OF votes, his teammate Kanemoto was very deserving at 4th with 450,000+ votes, but get this....Lin's other teammate - Akahoshi finished 8th in fan voting with 250,000+ votes. Akahoshi is currently hitting .263 with 0 HR's and 6 RBI's. Go figure.
