Friendly Reminder: Voix Pour le Bison

From "NL voting remains close as races approach wire" at MLB.com:

The league's top vote-getter and only player eclipsing the three million-vote mark, Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun (3,034,057), continues to head the way for the outfield spots ahead of the Cardinals duo of Lance Berkman (2,562,428) and Matt Holliday (2,390,118), though Los Angeles' Matt Kemp is closing in on the third spot with 2,062,667 votes.

Kemp was tied with Fielder for the league lead in home runs and was third in RBIs (57) on Monday morning. His teammate Andre Ethier is in the fifth spot with 1,889,298 votes.

If he's not voted in, Kemp seems sure to join Kershaw as All-Star managerial choices. Ethier would make it a nice trio. Make it so, Dodger fans!

Observation from D.C.: The Dodgers are worse than the Nationals this year, but they will almost certainly have more All-Star Representatives.

That's because this team has no real middle ground. We're either solid gold or replacement level.

I vote Strasburg.

So is it legal to leave off an outfielder and cast two votes for Kemp on one ballot? (Selection and write-in)

Don't know if you've seen this, but your dad talks about potentially owning the Dodgers and says he's "destined" to own the teamm in this video at foxsports.com.

Is it me, or does Lou Palou just sound like a perfect baseball player name?
