FanPost

Vote for one of our own!

Many of the people on this site are familiar with David Cameron, one of the guys behind the USSMariner blog.  During the 2007 season, dave wrote an open letter to then-Mariners pitching coach Rafael Chaves about Felix Hernandez's ridiculously predictable pitch selection early in games.  This led to a concerted effort by Chaves and Hernandez to mix pitches, and both men gave interviews to the local media saying that they realized that if an average fan who writes on the internet can figure out what Felix was about to throw, the hitter probably could, too.  It was a pretty damn cool instance of a blogger actually effecting the way baseball was played. 

You can find the letter here:

Open Letter to Rafael Chaves

This letter got Dave nominated for a $10,000 college blogging scholarship based on an internet vote. 

If the powers that be at gaslamp ball don't want promotion-type fanposts on the site, I understand and will take it down. A few other SBNation sites have thrown their support behind Dave (and I've posted call to action fanposts elsewhere), and even though I know the Ms are the Padres hated rivals and all, I thought some in the community might want to help out a damn good baseball blogger in need.

So, follow This link and vote for Dave!
