SoSG Campaign: The Polls Are Closed, The Results Are In...

...and you can rent 500 Days of Summer from Netflix today!

Oh yeah, and it looks like Pedro Guerrero has seen the end of his prolific tenure on Sons of Steve Garvey:

Final vote count (technically, the poll is still open, but this is what we're using with 116 votes counted, at 11:00a PT):

  • Pedro Guerrero: 57 votes for downsizing
  • Lasorda: 33
  • Delino DeShields: 23
  • Alex Cora: 7
  • Eric Karros: 6
  • Steve Sax: 5
  • Orel: 4

A concession speech from Pedro may be coming soon (depending on if he still remembers his blogger password). If not, we'll write something pithy for him. In the meantime, thank all of you for your votes, comments, and voting play-by-play--and for allowing the six remaining Sons to continue at their current salary (and expense account / lifestyle) levels.

This is a wakeup call to DD. But he still has time to right his ship before the mid-term elections.

Pedro, he'll just take some cushy K Street lobbyist job, parlaying his rolodex, fat with defense contractor contacts, into a healthy, if morally bankrupt, living earned due to his expertise in sucking off the federal teat.

Nah, personally, I don't think this vote is a referendum on Pedro at all; the anti-Dominican votes were clearly out to get him as I'm sure many people voted early and often!

"F y'all"
...I think that's the same thing I said on August 26, 1988 when you fckrs traded me to St Louis and THEN won the world series....so maybe, you'll win in 2010?

If we had more concession speeches like that, politics would be a lot more entertaining.

Dusty Baker said...

We did hardly know ye. I mean, we really did hardly know ye, PG.

Alex Cora said...

Phew...

Now that Pedro has conceded, I would love to hear some victory speeches from today's big winners. Or are you waiting until tomorrow night to give your State of the Sons address to Congress? Will MSTI give the minority response?

It's been nearly 2 hours and PG's official comments have yet to be quoted in the main post?
