We have officially passed the halfway point in the season, and this is the last week before the All-Star break. Where has the time gone? The All-Star Game and Home Run Derby are fun opportunities for fans to see the best players all in one place, but they aren’t without their issues. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday question:

What three changes would you make to the All-Star Game and/or Home Run Derby?

Now is your chance to fix All-Star week. You can focus on anything from the All-Star Game itself, to the Home Run Derby, the voting process, and so on. Maybe you think that player stats should be weighed in along with the fan vote, or maybe you think fan voting should be done away with. What about ideas for making the experience even more entertaining? It could be fun if all the players wore mics. Head over to the FanPost section and share your ideas. We’ll feature one of the submissions on the front page on Friday.

How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips, you should find yourself on the right track. We will also be looking for FanPosts with comments and recommendations. Depending on the number of responses we get, receiving some recs on your post could separate your FanPost from the crowd. Additionally, if your post has a number of comments then it may have sparked some worthwhile discussions. These are just a few things we’ll be looking for when we decide which post(s) to promote on the front page. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.

Submit your answer in the FanPost section before Friday (July 13th) for your post to be considered.
