Dusty thinks it's because some of the Cards who were in that brawl are now making ASG selections. I thought the players were all being selected through fan voting?
And that fight happened almost two years ago. Bit of a long time to hold a grudge, eh? At least for anyone not named Bob Gibson.
The eight position starts(and the DH if in the AL) are selected through fan voting. The players vote who get the bench spots. The two coaches who managed the World series pick the pitchers.
Usually the fans will get to select the last bench spot between 3 or 4 finalists too.
