All-Star voting fraud

According to this Inside Bay Area story, some computer geeks generated enough fraudulent votes to put Barry Bonds into the starting outfield, ahead of Alfonso Soriano. While there has been a long history of All-Star ballot stuffing, given Bonds' chase of Aaron's HR record and the never-ending steroids allegations, this may warrant some involvement from Bud Selig. (Personally, it doesn't surprise me at all that there is voting fraud, given the general laxity of the voting rules, and the ease that fraudulent traffic can be generated on the Internet.)
