    Bill James, in discussing baseball’s All-Star Game, presented what I think is a great idea: Have the ballot locations divvied up like the Electoral College.
    “In the 1980s, Bill James suggested changing baseball’s all-star voting by creating voting precincts, one for each major-league city, with all votes counting only toward the precinct total. First place in each precinct would be worth 16 points (in the NL, 14 in the AL), second place worth 15, third place 14 and so on.”
    Obviously, you could make Asia, Europe and America at large precincts of their own.Report
