National League All-Stars in Miniature (With YOUR Help)

TrophyBoys

The next best thing to nine Mets converging on a pitcher’s mound near us four times this fall would be for nine Mets to go to Pittsburgh and secure home-field advantage for the National League in the World Series. Even if we don’t get to use it, it’s the neighborly thing to do.

But the idea is that we get to use it.

The National League hasn’t won an All-Star Game since Lance Johnson was its leadoff hitter. Just goes to show you can’t get much done without Mets playing key roles. Don’t leave our potential October fate to Pirates who will be off at sea when those chill nights roll around. Don’t let Cardinals who could care less about beating American Leaguers carry the National League banner. And don’t let Andruw Jones near anything we want.

Vote. Vote today, Thursday, June 29. Vote here. Vote 25 times. And vote for the candidates who need your votes. You know who they are.

Wright, Reyes, Lo Duca and Beltran lead at their positions, but overness being what it is, it’s not yet over. Do the right thing. Vote. Vote Met. Only you can prevent the National League from looking like a bunch of Little Leaguers.

Of course we like these Little Leaguers, Coach Joel Lugo’s Stockton (Calif.) Sundown Little League Minor B Mets. Let’s hope our other Mets collect as much hardware down the road as these fellas did upon the recent completion of their season.
