When I hear names like Mike Lowell at third base, Jason Giambi, and David Ortiz leading the vote getters at first base (when he's not even a true first baseman) it really ticks me off. C'mon now, why is Joe Crede and Paul Konerko not leading the votes? I suppose because they do not play for the Red Sox or Yankees. Still, I have voted the max times I can to get these guys on the All Star Game (up to 25 times on http://www.whitesox.com. (http://www.whitesox.com)
So, let's get out there and VOTE!! We got Pods in last year. Let's get more of our deserving guys in the All Star Game.

IMO, last year, we had something to prove. This year, not so much.

If they don't get voted in, then Ozzie will just take them. He'll probably pull a "Torre"

I'd be voting, but my computer's old and I can't read the validation numbers all the way. It really sucks.:(:

It's kind of funny when you walk into the Cell, they hand you a bunch of ballots, and then the first trash can you see is filled with them.

Reminds me a Mitch Hedberg (RIP) joke. "When someone hands you a flyer, it's like they're saying, 'here, you throw this away".

I was pretty bored tonight and voted the max on 6 email addresses. So I did my part!!! The east coast teams have too big of an advantage in terms of exposure (thank you very much ESPN). I'd bet most casual baseball fans can only name Yankees or Red Sox players anyway. Rest assured, Ozzie will get our most deserving guys to Pittsburgh.

I think I'll have time to do my part tonight, finally. 4 email addresses x 25 votes = 100 votes from me.

If everyone on this board did the samething, we could probably make some sort of a dent. I really don't think any White Sox will make it though.

Thank the Booya Back Back Back Network. The only thing on the WHITE SOX they are interested in is Ozzie's mouth.

That is what is going to happen, no way our guys get voted in.

I think it just comes down to laziness (for lack of a better word) at the games. I used to punch a ballot or two with my keys back in the day but voting at the park is as dead as sanskrit. (A dead language that dates back before some of us posters here were born)

They need to have touch screens at the games with no log in garbage.
Just walk up vote and youre done.

If you had 10 on each level my bet is youd get about 5k votes a game.
As long as people dont have to wait long I think they'd do it.

As long as people dont have to wait long I think they'd do it.and who would pay for it?

unless the sox were to set up a fan loyalty/frequent buyer program(like some teams have) and rolled the cost of online voting machines into said program, i doubt it'll happen.....
I do think mobile voting sould be done
