Help send Lind to St. Louis
Adam 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.
