I just got an email from the A's mailing list imploring (that might be too strong a word, but you get the point) me to vote for Eric Chavez for the 30th AL spot.

Which is funny, since Chavez is one of thsoe people quoted as saying he really didn't want to go.





I asked Bobby Dylan, I asked the Beatles.
I asked Timothy Leary, but he couldn't help me either.

And even better, Lou Merloni beseeched Red Sox fans at the early game of today's doubleheader to vote for Damon. And look who got the AL nod. And was it just me, or did the AL have more total votes than the NL?

    And was it just me, or did the AL have more total votes than the NL?


Here are the total vote breakdowns (courtesy of MLB.com):

American League
Johnny Damon 692,989
Jim Thome 666,825
Eric Chavez 266,110
Magglio Ordonez 179,951
Darin Erstad 122,458

National League
Andruw Jones 559,752
Brian Giles 488,725
Larry Walker 297,174
Albert Pujols 267,196
Ryan Klesko 138,824

Total votes for the American League: 1,928,333
Total votes for the National League: 1,751,671

So there is quite a discrepency between the two leagues... I wonder if there is any logical reason for it? At least it's spurred interest in baseball a bit, which can only be a good thing.

Yeah, I don't know why you would vote for one and not the other. I guess there really are people that are only fans of one of the leagues but not the other.

The Red Sox are really bad at sending Emails at the All star time asking the fans to Vote for there own players. I got 2 messages in the same day asking me to vote for Damon.

Do you blame the teams for campaigning so hard. Cardinal nation wants Pujols in really bad. I appreciate that the cardinals are emailing everyone. I want to see him in. The team wants to see him in. I've also received other emails too.... but i'm voting for our guy. I kinda like this twist.



I've torn myself apart.... and tried to figure out why... but the only answer i was ever given... that really fits..... is the fact... that women are crazy.

The Draft will be held Saturday, March 22nd 2:30 EST, and as always it will be randomly ordered. Sorry, to change it once again. If there is a big problem with this switch, let me know via the League Message Board.
