Mike Sweeney Memorial All Stars

Right now, 8 (count 'em!) Royals are scheduled to start the All Star Game for the American League.

Well, this is a far cry from the days (years) of the Royals having a single token representative that I eventually started to call the "Mike Sweeney Memorial All Star".

Update (6/16/15): Here is Rob Neyer's take on the situation. (I certainly agree that the current situation will lead to some changes in the All-Star selection system.)

Update (7/06/15): At the end of the day, "only" 4 Royals were voted in as starters.
