That’s because right fielder Corey Hart is in the running for the final National League spot in the 2008 All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium, and the team’s campaign is underway.
The good news is that reports on Wednesday night said that Hart was holding on to the lead in the Monster 2008 All-Star Final Vote.
Although, Hart is currently the frontman and online and text voting runs through 4 p.m. CT today, Hart still needs every vote he can get. According to the league, "David Wright of the Mets and Pat Burrell of the Phillies are mounting significant challenges.”
So what can we do to ensure his victory?
There are two ways for fans to vote for Hart – online by clicking here or via text messaging. To text in your vote, just send “N2” to 36197. (This might explain it better.) Of course, standard text messaging rates apply if you choose to use that form of balloting.
There’s no limit to the number of times you’re allowed to cast a vote either, so vote often!
In my opinion, Hart is the most well-rounded Brewer, but the most underrated as well. Brewers fans rallied to put Braun in the starting lineup for the All-Star Game, and now we need to rise up again to get Hart to New York. He deserves it!
Needless to say, I’ve been text messaging so much that my thumbs are sore. On my lunch breaks I’ve also been voting countless times. Undoubtedly, other Brewers fans are doing the same! Plus, at the game last night I had a change to vote again. The Brewers set up a polling station in the Associated Bank Kids Area at Miller Park for all four of their home games this week.
The winner will be announced on MLB.com shortly after balloting concludes this evening. Until then, keep voting for Hart!
FYI: I obviously didn't take the photo, but I don't know where it originally came from.
