All Star Game: Still Get Out The Youk Vote!

Ok, I might be a little All Star Vote obsessed lately. But no fear, I'm not done flapping my gums about the All Star Voting just yet. We still have until 11:59 PM on Thursday July 2nd to vote for the All Star Game.

So, if you have not voted yet...please get on over to here and vote. You can vote 25 times for every email address you have. If you are like me and have more than one email address....you can vote a bunch more times than 25. Feel free to talk your neighbors, co-workers, friends, paper boy, etc into voting as well.

They have announced the standings this afternoon...and here is how our boys are doing in the hunt for who will represent the AL in the 2009 All Star Game:

First Base: As of this very moment...our own Kevin Youkilis has overtaken the 1st base of evil aka Mark Teixeira. That, my Fenway West friends...is awesomesauce. See? Annoyingly clicking those VOTE NOW boxes over and over again actually made a difference. Last time the results were reported, Youk was trailing Teixeira by about 35,000 votes. Now...Youk is leading Teixeira by a little more than 40,000 votes. Of course, that does not mean we can breathe a sigh of relief and stop voting. Those evil Yankee fans could always make a final push in the last few days. So, I will continue my war cry. VOTE YOUK, VOTE OFTEN!!!

Second Base: Last time we reported, Dustin Pedroia was trailing Ian Kinsley by almost 60,000 votes. NOW...Pedey is only trailing Kinsley by 6,830 votes. That's right SIX THOUSAND and THIRTY votes. So, if we can swing 70,000 votes in Youk's favor in the last week....we can sure swing a little shy of 7K. The reigning MVP should be starting in the All Star Game, dontcha agree??? Head on over to mlb.com and get to voting for Pedey. It's the only responsible thing you can do.

Third Base: Mikey Lowell is currently in 3rd place behind Evan Longorio and Alex Rodriguez. Mikey is currently on the DL and I am in denial about that, so that's all I am going to say about that. Except...I love that Longo is still in the lead over A-Rod by over a million votes. That means everything is right in the world.

Short Stop: Jed Lowrie is still in 5th place....which is still all kinds of hilarious. That is all.

Catcher: Jason Varitek is still is 2nd place behind Joe Mauer. I love Tek, but that only seems fair. Tek is currently ahead of the Yanks Jorge Posada...and two guys who have been in trade rumors to maybe head to Boston to be the "catcher of the future" Rangers Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Indians Victor Martinez (both trades will probably never ever ever happen).

Outfield: Everything is about the same. JayBay is still in 1st place. Ellsbury is in 6th place and JD Drew has moved up 10th place. Let's remember that even though JD Drew is not the most popular member of the Sox, he is still trailing the evil traitor that is Johnny Damon (8th place).

We still have a few days to vote for the All Star Game. SO...let's DO IT!




and then....
