We’re stoked that a trio our boys are making the trip out to Cali for the 2010 All-Star Game. Brandon Phillips, Scott Rolen and the BAMF himself, Arthur Rhodes are in, representing the first time since 2004 that the Reds have sent more than the minimum to the All-Star Game.
But, like everyone else out in Redsland, we’re
f-ing pissed feeling the pain of not seeing Joey Votto make the NL roster despite being the most-qualified NL first baseman this year.
Fortunately, Joey was included as a nominee for the NL’s “Final Vote”. Deserving? Marketing ploy? You make the choice, but whatever you do, vote for Joey so you can order up your VottoStar Galactica jersey.
While you’re at it, just go ahead and vote for local skills, Kevin Youkilis over on the AL Final Ballot.
There is no limit to the amount of votes you can cast for the “Final Vote”. Kill it ya’ll! Online voting ends July 8, 2010 at 4:00 p.m. ET.
Complete list of Final Vote Nominees:
H. Bell, SD
C. Gonzalez, COL
J. Votto, CIN
B. Wagner, ATL
R. Zimmerman, WSH
P. Konerko, CWS
N. Swisher, NYY
K. Youkilis, BOS
D. Young, MIN
M, Young, TEX
