Hey Now, You’re (almost) An All-Star

The Rockies are getting some All Star Voting love thanks to three of our guys leading voting in their respective positions.  Tulowitzki is killing everyone in the NL with 745,823 votes.  He has over half a million votes than his closest competition at short, Brandon Crawford (218,123).  He also has more than 100,000 between him and the second place NL leader, Yadier Molina (640,464).

Nolan Arenado is leading all 3rd baseman with 318,111 votes, second to Aramis Ramirez (282,843).  Sadly, NoDo’s broken finger will likely keep him from actually playing in the game.  Too bad the world won’t get to see his sweet hot-corner moves.  Oh well, there’s always SCTop 10.

Charlie Blackmon continues to defy all expectation, making 2014 the Year of the Nazty.  He is leading all of the outfielders with 549,394 votes, over 80,000 votes more than McCutchen who is in second.  Blackmon is also THIRD in all of the NL for voting.

Morneau is top three in voting at first, only 40,000 shy of AGon. CarGo and Cuddy are 13th and 14th place, respectively, in the outfield.

Here’s hoping this continues to the All Star Break.  Make sure you vote early, vote often!!!

Nolan deserves to be the 3rd base top vote winner, regardless of injury. The competition this year is bad…..and Nolan is good. Fat Panda = down. Zimmerman = injured most of the season-to-date. David Wright = not what he used to be. Matt Carpenter = maybe at 2nd, but not at 3rd.

Ain’t that the truth. A number of years ago the Cincinnati Reds had something like six of the eight fielders start the game. Granted they were good in those days, but not that good.

Can’t remember the exact year but sometime in the mid to late 1950’s the Reds stacked the ballot and almost the whole team was made of Reds. That was during the periods when other guys in NL consisted of Mays, Aaron, Clemente, Eddie Matthews and others. Commissioner voided some of the winners and took away the fan votes for a number of years.

I confess I rarely vote anymore for the AS game. I still love it, but the ballot stuffing kind of throws sensibility out (there was a year a few years back when some guy won the vote and he was hitting like .220). I guess I should vote…on-line if you register and account with mlb you get 10 extra votes. But do you only vote for Rockies? Can I truly allow myself to vote for say Puig? Would my computer… Read more »
