Of course, this system allows fans to only vote for Indians players over and over.
But this year there are some legitimate, deserving options on the ballot in terms of those who call Cleveland home.
The voting system has fans focusing on batters only, while pitchers are determined by the players and the league.
So who are three Indians batters who deserve your vote?

3. Jose Ramirez
We start with the most obvious player of all.
Jose Ramirez deserves votes not just from Indians fans, but those who cheer on any team in MLB.
He is once again playing at an MVP level and has 13 home runs so far, along with an .882 OPS.
His WAR is already above 2.0 and we are only in the beginning of June.
There is no telling how high it can go, especially if he bumps up his average from .258.
Ramirez is a lock for the All-Star Game, alongside Shane Bieber.
Surprisingly, this would mark only his third All-Star Game appearance.
2020 would have been his third if not for the unique season.
2. Franmil Reyes
Franmil Reyes remains on the ballot even though he is currently out with an abdominal injury.
So will he make the game?
Probably not, but voting for Reyes is still valid.
He had a .893 OPS through 40 games and also launched 11 home runs.
Reyes and Ramirez formed a clear 1-2 punch in the lineup while Eddie Rosario continued to disappoint.
Now Ramirez is the sole star of the show while Reyes recovers.
Given the slugger can return without issue, his final numbers for the year should be solid.
He just may end up being a player who had All-Star numbers over the full season, but not at the time of the actual All-Star Game.
1. Jordan Luplow
We wrap up this list with the biggest stretch of all.
The Indians just don’t have much offensive talent in 2021, leaving Jordan Luplow as the third choice if we need three.
Unfortunately, he is also dealing with a nagging injury.
To create a roster spot for Eli Morgan, scheduled to start tonight in his major-league debut, the Indians placed Jordan Luplow on the 10-day IL with an ankle injury.

Luplow got off to a nice start this year with seven home runs and 20 RBI in 36 games.
While his .173 batting average wasn’t pretty, he made up for it with a .769 OPS.
So when Luplow was hitting the ball, he was making it count.
The outfielder is going to get his fair share of votes simply for being on the ballot.
But Ramirez is the only player from this list who will have a real chance to be selected.
As for the pitchers, that is where the Indians will make noise.
We know Bieber and Ramirez are going.
Who should join them?
