I think that if someone declines or goes down due to injury, someone not on the final man ballot can take their place. If that's the case, Rios has a good shot.

I think we need to make an committment to one of the NL candidates to get some sort of an alliance going. We can't switch it up like that or they'll just do the same thing for the AL. Which would completely defeat the purpose.

I don't know why I like this Final Vote so much...usually I hate this gimmicky type of thing. I think it all goes back to '05 when we had a great team, a lot of excitement, and everything (including voting Podsednik into the ASG) was breaking the club's way.

I would have liked to see Strasburg on the Final Vote, though...I think that would have been a good solution given his dominance but limited number of starts.

No he shouldnt. Not enough starts, everyone acts like he is god and only has 5 or 6 starts? He would dominate the final vote just because of how popular he is, there are plently of other pitchers that are more deserving that have been pitching good all year. Im glad he isn't an all star. He doesnt deserve it this year

Agree with all this, but disagree with the implication the "deserving it" should be the most important aspect of the ASG. I think everyone around here agrees that it's not actually the most important aspect, and I for one am okay with that. The ASG is all about promoting the game and appealing to the fans...it's gimmicky. Living here in DC, it's pretty cool to see some excitement about the Nats...would have liked to see the city get excited about voting in Strasburg. Zimmerman won't have same effect.

Keep voting folks.

This is the kind of stuff that allows free agents to see what kind of support they'll get here on the south side of Chicago. When a player sells out for the organization, like Konerko has, we understand and appreciate it.

If we keep turning out winners in Final Votes like this there will be no doubt that the White Sox fan base is exactly the fan base that a successful free agent wants to have behind him.

I have Paulie's campaign on my FB.
I have voted like 50 times today.
However, I am not thrilled about punching in the CODE each and every time. Is there a way around it ?

The only way around a captcha is to buy a service where a human types it in for you using a program that allows them to see the window. Which, as you could probably assume, costs money.

Just did my part for the day - 100 votes for Konerko/Votto in 17 minutes. I can do 17 minutes a day if it helps for the 100 votes.

Stretch that out to 34 minutes a day and double it! We can't let Swisher beat Konerko... That's just embarrassing for the organization.

Looking at the last page, it seems to be wavering a lot more :o:.

Supposedly the actual teams made an agreement for Votto/Youkilis, similar to Dye/Rowand in 08. This don't look too good :?:

It's tough when going up against NYY and BOS, but I'm still voting like crazy today and I refuse to give up.

Has he at least moved up a spot?

Yeah, I'll still be voting. If Nick ****ing Swisher goes to the All-Star game, it'll seal my hatred of him forever. And my hatred of this damn popularity contest.

Keep voting, guys! Don't rest on your 2005-Podsednik laurels! One final push!

It looks like a two horse race.We must be having some effect. Carlos Gonzalez moved up to third place.

I think our best chance at getting Konerko in is if Youk wins, then skips the game with his ankle injury. Even then, Girardi probably goes with his guy as a replacement.

It's between Swisher and Youk at the moment apparently. But don't give up folks. Don't stop believing.

Now it has locked me out. Well, we did our best. It's a tough road to get Paulie in with all the lame Boston vs. NY hype. Let's hope for a miracle.

I suspect he's not going to make it, but so long as it's not Nick "I'm awesome!" Swisher, I'll be ok.

Sooooo true. I don't mind if Youk makes it in...he deserves it way more than Swisher. Plus I kinda like the Red Sox.(don't kill me!!)

I used to like the Red Sox. Then they won two World Series and their fans became insufferable douches.
