For once, I agree with the propaganda posting that is Inside the Dodgers (MLB). Russell Martin deserves to go to the 2007 All-Star Game. And we need to get him there.
Here are the results of All-Star Game voting, as of 5/29/07 (first release of votes):
- 1. Lo Duca, P., Mets, 339,527
- 2. McCann, B., Braves, 288,491
- 3. Estrada, J., Brewers, 255,884
- 4. Martin, R., Dodgers, 198,914
Now, I'm not a Paulie-hater. But we gotta get Russell up to fill that 90K-vote gap to at least slot in at second place. For pete's sake, that guy is throwing himself over fences for our team (see the last two paragraphs in the story). The least we can do is vote him in.
Voix Pour Le Russell is now the #2 campaign of SoSG, right behind FREE JAMES LONEY (would that sound as good in French?)
