For a moment, I don’t care if you are a Reds fan or not.
It’s time to right one of the worst injustices in All Star Game history (and no, I’m not exaggerating even a little).
Votto is in the top five in RBIs, Batting Average and HRs in the National League. He’s having unarguably the best season of any first baseman in the NL. This would be the first time since 1952 that an NL player didn’t make the AS team while in the top 5 in all three triple crown categories (Boog Powel got snubbed in ’66 in the AL).
When I say that the omission of Votto for guys like Ryan Howard and Adrian Gonzalez is a historic gaffe by Charlie Manuel, I mean it.
Do the right the thing. Prove you are smarter than Manuel and VOTE VOTTO!
