The problem with starting All-Star balloting earlyBy
The All-Star game is in mid-July. So why start balloting in April? Search me. MLB has apparently decided that this is the best course of action. The problem, of course, is that only the Opening Day starters got on the ballot, leaving guys like Nick Swisher high and dry. That’s a shame, because if Lastings Millidge belongs on the ballot, so does Nicky S. Thankfully, a group of Yanks fans have banded together to raise awareness for this cause. It’s the aptly-titled VoteSwisher.com. Head over there and get all the info to write in Nick on the ballot. With our forces combined we can get him more write-in votes than Ron Paul.
