All-Star balloting ends tonight and our beloved left fielder Ryan Braun needs your vote now!
Don't care? Well, you should!
With Braun’s strong momentum, he’s come closer to closing the gap on a starting position in the 2008 All-Star Game, but it's down to the wire now.
According to the most recent results that were released on Monday, Braunie was fourth among National League outfielders with 1,751,058 votes and trailed Kosuke Fukudome of the Cubs by just 32,925.
Don’t you want to see the reigning National League Rookie of the Year starting in the 2008 All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium? Fans can vote up to 25 times online through 10:59 p.m. CT TODAY. The top three outfielders will be named to the starting lineup for the July 15 Midsummer Classic.
To help get out the vote, the Brewers are offering fans the opportunity to win a private suite and 12 tickets for a Brewers game, which includes a special visit to the suite by hotties Ryan Braun and J.J. Hardy. You better believe that I’ve already cast my vote, yep, a bazillion times so far. Okay, so I’m a little obsessed...
But, to be eligible for the suite prize, fans must go to brewers.com and vote 25 times or more through the conclusion of the online voting process, which is today, folks! So vote! (But not more than me because I want to win. K?)
According to the official site of the Crew, several Brewers continue to rank among the leaders at their respective positions: First baseman Prince Fielder (fourth), second baseman Rickie Weeks (fifth), third baseman Bill Hall (fourth), catcher Jason Kendall (third) and outfielders Mike Cameron (14th) and Corey Hart (13th).
Now, it’s also important to note that if you mark your ballot for Hardy, Prince, Hart or any other All-Star favorite, you are entered into another sweepstakes – a chance to score tickets to the Brewers vs. the Reds at Miller Park in September. But, just like the other All-Star election ploy, you have to vote a key number of 25 times before tonight.
For more info, head over here. Remember, all entrants must be 21 or older to be eligible for the sweepstakes. Again, in case you just skimmed my post, everything I mentioned ends tonight just before 11 o'clock!
So do your favorite Brewer proud and be sure to head over to brewers.com and vote (often) TODAY!
FYI: I obviously didn't take the photo, but I don't know where it originally came from.
