Let's vote some Padres into the All Star Game, shall we?

"You're going to be on the All Star Team Adrian! I can feel it. Now YOU feel how soft my freshly shaven cheek is on the back of your hand."

Here we are at the end of May, the Padres are in first place in the NL West, they have the best record in the National League and not one Padre player is in the top 5 at any position. It makes my blood boil!

Though I think it says a couple things about our team.  First and foremost, we are a true team, one that works together with a new player stepping up each night to propel us to victory.  Secondly, I don't think anybody outside of San Diego county realizes that we're awesome.  They probably already think Adrian Gonzalez is a Red Sock.

Go to MLB.com and Vote for some Padres, preferably Adrian Gonzalez, David Eckstein and Chase Headley since those guys have the best chance.  As Padres fans we all need to all be on the same page.  Hell, you should probably be voting for all Padres anyway.

2010 - Chase Headley 45 178 25 50 7 0 3 18 14 35 9 1 .281 .328 .371

Look at the players in the lead at each of their positions.  As of yesterday Albert Pujols had 647,666 votes.  That means that we just need to get 25,907 people to vote 25 times each for Adrian Gonzalez to put him in the lead.

Chase Utley has 687,724 votes which means that only 27,509 of us need to vote for David Eckstein 25 times to put him in the lead.

As for Chase Headley, well he's the easiest of them all. 

 

Placido Palanco is in the lead with 309,458 votes, which means that 12,379 of us need to vote 25 times each.  He'll probably get some Phillies fans voting for him too because they'll be so excited to vote for Utley that they'll vote any Chase they see. 

If we band together and get everybody at PETCO and on the internets to vote for Headley, we could have him in the lead by tomorrow.  Think about that!

We could have all of these Padres in the lead by the end of the home stand if we could just get the majority of Padres fans attending games to vote.

I wonder if they could lay out ballots in groups of 25 and you could punch through all 25 at once.  I'm going to practice that and see if it is feasible at tonight's game.
