An All-Star Coup

Here's the deal: There are three Pirates, in addition to Jason Bay, who are currently ranked in the top 4 at their respective position in All-Star voting. Jack Wilson and Jose Castillo could have a legitimate shot at starting in the game, but only if we all band together and stick it to Major League Baseball. Fan voting is a total farce, as idiot Yankee, Red Sox, and Cardinals fans stuff the ballot box year after year, with no regard to what players are actually deserving of this honor. So let's prove that it's a sham by voting in players from the host city, which happens to be one of the worst teams in baseball. Cruise over to if you haven't already, and vote for Sean Casey, Jose Castillo, Jack Wilson, Joe Randa, Ryan Doumit, Jason Bay, Jeromy Burnitz, and (Lord help me) Chris Duffy. At least Bay has a legitimate reason to play. The great fans of Pittsburgh are doing their part, but fans across the rest of the country need to support them. Load your NL ballot with Pirates! The AL you say? It doesn't matter who you vote for there, they'll kill the NL regardless. Now is the time to take a stand, to do your part. Together, we can make this happen!

I'm with you and everything but Chris Duffy. Nobody on the Anti-All Star Team deserves votes. Instead of Duffy that 3rd OF vote can go to Thunder Matt.
