Earlier we talked about Evan Longoria and Carl Crawford and their standings in the early All-Star game voting. But there is a third Tampa Bay Ray with an outside shot at being elected a starter…Pat Burrell.
Burrell is currently 4th, ahead of David Ortiz and trailing Vladimir Guerrero by about 240,000 votes.
And now The Fightins think it would be a good idea to support Burrell’s campaign.
Pat Burrell is currently FOURTH in the All-Star game voting for American League DH. He is only 244,068 votes behind Vladimir Guerrero, the leader in that particular category. PLEASE VOTE PAT BURRELL [VPB2010]
Surprisingly, we love this idea. Would Burrell be able to go? Would he be forced to wear a generic AL jersey? Would Burrell have to spend two days answering questions about how much he sucks and whether he should even be there? Would he answer questions from the St. Pete Times? The possibilities are endless. And all of them make us giddy as a schoolgirl.
