Vote and Blog

Dive into the Final Vote here at MLB.com, or vote by mobile. Here are the choices, one from each league, and deadline to vote is 6 pm ET Thursday (extended this year):

AL: Travis Hafner (CLE), Ramon Hernandez (BAL), Francisco Liriano (MIN), A.J. Pierzynski (CWS), Justin Verlander (DET).

NL: Bobby Abreu (PHI), Chris Capuano (MIL), Nomar Garciaparra (LA), Billy Wagner (NYM), Chris Young (SD).

Among the surprises was that three Red Sox players who missed the overall AL roster — Curt Schilling, Josh Beckett, Jason Varitek — were excluded from Ozzie Guillen’s list of Final Vote choices. But Boston still has a heavy (and deserving ASG presence). Am glad that no team had more than one Final Vote choice this time; the split-vote tends to cancel them out based on Final Vote history. I called the Ramon Hernandez pick if you look a couple of posts down, so I don’t want to hear that Baltimore radio station complaining now. This is the Anti-Snub Complaining vote.

So, who are your choices? Blog your vote, and remember you can vote as many times as you want.

John,

The only conspiracy keeping Liriano off the team is the conspiracy between MLB and their ignorant fans. The AL fans did such a poor job voting in starters that Guillen had fewer available slots to plug in the most deserving players, and Ozzie compounded the problem by picking Jenks,etc.

It’s just silly that Liriano didnt make the first cut and it never would’ve happened if anyone but the fans(players or managers or sportswriters) were making the evaluations.

If Francisco Liriano does NOT get voted into the All-Star Game, I’m pulling Oliver Stone off his latest conspiracy theory mockumentary and putting him on the case. Francisco The Fantastic is now 9-1 with a 1.99 ERA and 94 strikeouts in 81.1 innings pitched. How can you leave the hottest pitcher on the hottest team in baseball OFF the All-Star roster? And keep in mind Liriano didn’t even get into the rotation until late May!
