Final Vote for All-Star Game 2010

Well, I think the Twins will be well-represented at the All-Star Game in Anaheim this year thanks to the M&M boys doing so well in the voting.  Isn’t it amazing what a little commercial time can do to a couple guys in flyover country?

Here’s the list of currently selected players:

2010 All-Stars

AL starters
C: J. Mauer, MIN
1B: J. Morneau, MIN
2B: R. Cano, NYY

Full All-Star rosters

BUT!!  We, as fans, aren’t done yet!  We have a chance to continue voting for the player to be added to the roster.  Here in Twins Territory, one of our favorite debates over the last couple years has been whether or not Delmon Young would ever live up to his potential.  We get frequent reminders – which we need because we frequently forget – that Delmon Young is still a very young man and still developing the necessary maturity as a player.  However, this year we’re finally seeing some of that development take place.  And due to what is really becoming a great season for him, he has been included in the list of 5 men that the fans can choose to add to each league roster. 

Twins fans should really take advantage of this!  So go vote for Delmon!

  1. A note of interest… when I voted online for the All Star game participants, MLB had imposed a ’25 vote limit’ per email address. I’ve been clicking away voting for Delmon and Joey Votto during my spare time this afternoon and so far I haven’t run up against the same limit. I have no idea how many votes I’ve cast, but I’m sure it’s been more than 25.

  2. yeah, I haven’t run into any limit yet either – I have definitely passed 25.

  4. I think Delmon’s my boyfriend. It took me a bit to get back in the game after GoGo got traded, but I think I’ve found The One.
