Vote For Manny 2009

Jason of the blog It Is About the Money, Stupid has created a campaign designed to help get the currently-suspended Dodgers outfielder voted in as a starter for the 2009 All-Star Game in St. Louis. Head over to the website for more information.

As you may expect, any campaign that brings to light the fallacy of the anti-drug fervor and MLB’s laughable drug policies is a worthy campaign. Crashburn Alley is a proud supporter!

Look for more on the All-Star Game from me at Baseball Daily Digest in the next week or two as voting starts to heat up. I’ll go ahead and say it now: how is Raul Ibanez sixth in voting among National League outfielders?

    Manny’s keeping Raul down. Tough call for you Phillies fans.

    Thanks for the link and the laugh, Bill!

    And then to retaliate, another group can vote for the 3 skinniest outfielders because they are the least likely to have ever used steroids…and the All-Star game will reach an even higher level of absurdity.

    Right now, Manny’s stats don’t compare to the best of a crowded NL outfield…and in another month it will be even more skewed. I understand the idea behind the campaign, but wouldn’t that also be an insult to the players that are deserving All-Stars?

    Maybe Manny will get some votes out of protest, but he’ll be getting more votes from people just because of his popularity and name recognition. Oh yeah, also he’s so cool with the just don’t care dreadlocks and treating teammates like shit attitude…so extra votes for being such a badass.

    I’m voting for Darren Daulton because he is saving me a seat on his spaceship, and also I’m a sucker for alliterative names. I’m off to start my own All-Star protest. Double-D, Craig Counsell and Coco Crisp will see you in St. Louis.
