Per Whitesox.com......

"Tadahito Iguchi remains the closest White Sox player to a starting spot, ranked third behind Robinson Cano and Mark Loretta, but just 56,000 out of the top spot."

This could be something within the powers of the WSI Army via online voting. Of course, Ozzie may just pick him anyway.

Opinions?

For the link, jus tgo to whitesox.com and look for the Monster Online Ballot link on the main page.

And yes, it is only 25 votes per email address, I believe. I'm sure all those Yankee and BoSox voters have more than one e-mail address *winky-winky*

I may be pushing it with this idea, but after everyone kicked booty for Pods last year, it might be cool to help send the Gooch to his first All-Star game.

Did the international fans just get to vote? How about we send Ondafarm to some Japanese baseball boards and petition to get Tadahito into the game? :D:

Gooch needs that Japanese population behind him, then he'll run away with this one.

That is such a good idea. Maybe I can send the link to family in Mexico....my aunts do have a crush on a few of the Sox...

Well this is what i saw on the sox website. http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/news/article.jsp?ymd=20060518&content_id=1459684&vkey=allstar2006&fext=.jsp Really old but it just shows that japanese can get their vote on.

Hmmm...I read this board that has a bunch of Americans who teach English in Japan. Maybe I should post there trying to get them to spread the word...

Didn't a bunch of A's fans almost get the entire team elected one year by creating a bunch of primitive quick vote machines made of nails and plywood, then taking them to the park and/or getting boxes of ballots?

Was anyone on WSI a whiz in wood shop??

Or is that cheating...

That's a good idea......Bu tI think the must efficient way of doing it is via internet voting and filling in jibberish for the email address, etc.

He'll be going anyway. Ozzie'll select Jim, Paulie, Dye, Tads, Crede, AJ, Buehrle, Contreras, and Jenks if he can.

Can you really use made up e-mail addresses and have the votes count? I really want to use mlballstarvotingisajoke@travishamockery.com.

Have been doing this since seeing he was so close. Damn NY and Boston. But we do have Japan on our side.

Also, if you want Dye in, vote in crappy outfielders for your other 2 so you don't give the players ahead of him votes

I remember last year for Pods I used some Twin fan's troll's email address to vote (he posted his blog and email about how much he hated the Sox)

I'm going to try out my Cub fan friends AIM e-mail addresses because it's the exact same thing as their screenname.
