Looks like they modified the form this year. Once you submit you can resubmit several times in a row. I didn't test to see if there was a limit, but put in about 10 votes or so to get things kicked off...

I too, have voted early and often. I could not find a limit on the number of votes, and I'm sure I voted about 50 times already.

Let's make Paul an All-Star! :bandance:

They made it super easy to promote using social media as well... so if you have facebook, twitter, etc., go ahead and "campaign" using the buttons below the voting window.

Here's a tip: play a song and vote continuously until the song ends. I just voted a bunch to Story of My Life by Social Distortion, which lasts 5:47. The longer the song, the more votes you can get in. Let's do it, Sox Army!:cool:

Count me in for roughly 30 votes so far for Paul. He's one of our franchise's best players ever. It only seems fitting that we help our best accumulate more accolades to their story book careers. I only wish we could have voted Frank Thomas into more games. Who knows...maybe if the rest of the offense wakes up for the rest of the season...the Sox can make the playoffs...and Pauli can get some MVP consideration.

That's another thing... Possible MVP candidate (no I'm not saying he's the favorite)...but possibly left off the all star team????:scratch:

All In for PK. I just spent the last 20 minutes straight voting!

My goals:

1.) Enough votes today to cover 1 vote for every homer PK has had.
2.) Enough votes while the voting is open to cover every hit PK has had.

I would challenge everyone here to do #1 over the duration the voting is open. Let's show everyone how we can win this Fan Vote to get our DESERVING candidates in...especially when they are MVP candidates!

We won in 2005 and 2006 (Pods and AJ), but PK has never won this way. He was named a substitute in 2010 and was up against Big Hurt in 2004 when Matsui won it.

I've got family in LA who are Dodger die hards and, thanks to me, the Sox are their AL team; especially my niece and nephew. (Yes, I brainwashed them when they were young, taking them to multiple Sox games whenever they visited Chicago.)

Anyway, they've been online for 2 hours straight doing the Paulie/Ethier alliance voting. Not to mention that PK is their favorite player next to Matt Kemp in all of baseball.

Lets go guys, we can right the travesty of Paulie not being named to the team and make the point moot.
