Making sense of MLB’s new All-Star voting system

It used to be much simpler. Voting for the Major League Baseball All-Star game in the lo-fi era only took one sentence to explain: Go to a game, get a ballot, pick your players and then return the ballot.

Ah, the paper ballots. They’ve gone of the way of the VHS tape, the compact disc and 8-bit video games. Things these days are more “convenient” — the league would tell you — and more technologically advanced.

But explaining MLB All-Star voting in one sentence these days would take a pretty long sentence. Especially in 2019.

The league rolled out its brand new All-Star voting system Tuesday. It’s a two-tiered approach that was announced before the season, but it’s now active and collecting votes.

So, what team’s fans will find a way to game the system this year?
