Help send Lind to St. Louis

lind.jpgAdam Lind’s chances of making it to the All-Star Game were slim before this season even started. As the Jays’ projected DH, Lind was left off the ballot, due to the game being played in a National League park.

No matter how well Lind played, it was going to be difficult to convince fans to write his name in enough times to send him to St. Louis. Well, Lind has been enjoying a breakout season, and now his name IS on a ballot.

The Final Vote ballot.

Lind joins L.A.’s Chone Figgins, Tampa Bay’s Carlos Pena, Detroit’s Brandon Inge and Texas’ Ian Kinsler as the American League choices for the final spot on the league’s elite squad.

Blue Jays fans can vote for Lind until 4 p.m. ET on Thursday, and he certainly deserves to join ace Roy Halladay and second baseman Aaron Hill at Busch Stadium. Through 80 games, all A Mighty Lind has done is hit .309 with 17 homers, 25 doubles and 55 RBIs, putting up a .384 on-base and a .553 slugging. He added a two-run homer in the third-inning at Yankee Stadium today.

So, this is your chance as Blue Jays fans to potentially help Lind to his first All-Star Game. CLICK HERE TO CAST YOUR VOTE.

How many times can you vote? There doesn’t seem to be a limit…

jb, i can never find your mailbag address when I need it, but my question is how does this allstar voting work. aaron hill was 4th a few days ago and presumably won, but I read somewhere that was voted by his peers, but I voted for him a number of times on the day voting closed, so what is the real story. Also how did lind get chosen for this final ballot?

tananhdmur, the starting players in the All Star Game are voted in by fan voting, a system that gives unfair advantage to big market teams like Boston and New York. Apparently Pedroia overtook Kinsler in the last few days of voting to gain the starting 2b spot.
The reserves are selected by the players and coaches, which in my opinion, is the greater honour for Aaron Hill, considering that his peers selected him over all the great second basemen playing today. In all fairness to Ian Kinsler, however, I think that if Pedroia was leading at the time of the player voting, that the nod may have gone to Kinsler.

so then why was i voting for aaron hill 25 times the other day

I voted for Hill that many times too. Ends up being a waste of time.

I am a Phillies fan. I have been voting for Adam Lind and ask you guys to return the favor and vote for Shane Victorino. Unlike voting for the starting team, it appears that voting for this extra player is limitless. Thus far I have voted several hundred times and includes Adam Lind as my AL selection. I encourage you to go to the Phillies site and make this same offer. Trust, my friends, trust.

Thats funny I just voted several hundred times for lind and selected Victorino for the NL. I hadnt read this yet. You got your self a deal.
