Stick It To Selig

Hello there Marlins Fans,

 

It is about time for the voting to begin. Voting for the 2006 All-Star Game that is. As you know, the All-Star Game means something now. You can tell in how serious the players go at it during the game, you can tell it the way the managers really work on the lineups and "manage to win". Yes, the All-Star Game counts now!

 

Bud Selig got his way. He let a few hundred intoxicated fans in Miller Park that fateful night get into his brain with their "outrage" that an exhibition game could end in a tie (wake up, it happens all the time in spring training), and now a meaningless exhibition game determines which league gets home field advantage in the World Series. The last two seasons that gave the A.L. a big advantage in my opinion, and has resulted in two A.L. sweeps in the last two World Series.

 

Marlins fans I urge you to turn the tables on Mr. Selig. Turn his "brilliant" idea against him. How you ask? Well simple, vote for the worst that the American League has to offer. It makes perfect sense if you think your team has a chance to make it to the "Fall Classic". Support the NL!

 

Here is who you should vote for as the on-line voting begins, and the lesser important in-stadium voting (another sad turn of events).

 

Catcher: Jason Kendall - Oakland, Batting .214 with 0 HRs, and 5 RBIs

 

First Base: Dan Johnson - Oakland, Batting .145 with 1 HRs, and 3 RBIs

 

Second Base: Aaron Hill - Toronto, Batting .191 with 0 HRs, and 4 RBIs

 

Shortstop: Bobby Crosby - Oakland, Batting .224 with 2 HRs, and 6 RBIs

 

Third Base: Adrian Beltre - Seattle, Batting .175 with 0 HRs, and 5 RBIs

 

Outfield: Rondell White - Minnesota, Batting .150 with 0 HRs, and 5 RBIs

 

Outfield: Jeff Conine - Baltimore, Batting .169 with 3 HRs, and 8 RBIs

 

Outfield: Jeremy Reed - Seattle, Batting .207 with 0 HRs, and 3 RBIs

 

Designated Hitter: Mike Sweeney - Kansas City, Batting .193 with 1 HRs, and 4 RBIs

 

There you go, stick it to the commissioner, and vote for the worst in the A.L. It is the least you can do as Marlins fans. It makes sense, and may help your team come October. Plus the NL has that extra team, so we have the advantage in this over the A.L.

 

Vote early, and vote often.

 

Feel free to pass this on to as many people as you can. It originated on a Cardinals board, and has since passed on to many others. There have already been over 500 votes cast for the "worst AL" team. It doesn't matter what NL team you're a fan of, let's stick it to Selig!!!

 

MAKE SURE YOU VOTE FOR THIS TEAM AS MANY TIMES AS YOU CAN!!!

 

Thank you all very much!

Out of these two alone, I'd rather vote for Juan Castro (SS / MIN) batting .234 with 0 HRs and 4 RBIs. In the OF, theres plenty of choices, but why would you ask the Marlins to vote for the worst AL players and mention "Mr. Marlin" ? Sounds like a generic message, but maybe: Brian Anderson (White Sox) .161 AVG / 2 HR / 6 RBI and 22 Ks in 62 ABs. There's always DeJesus from KC, too. Four hits in 24 ABs. If your gonna vote for the WORST, vote for the worst.

I saw this in another thread (All-Star game) and I bet all the American League people are going to vote the Marlins in :( .

 

I doubt it. We're so far off the national consciousness that people probably don't even realize we exist. Kind of like that book "Sideways Stories From Wayside School". One of the chapters focused on a girl that was never noticed until she began to not exist and had to go to school on the non-existent 13th floor. We are that girl.

The AL swept the last two series because they had better teams, not because of homefield advantage. Keep in mind half the WS games the Red/White Sox played were on the road, and they both won on the road. The Marlins on the other hand won the series without home field advantage and won on the road.

 

People who vote for players who are sucking should be put on a plane with snakes.
