Ordinarily, I would have continued my analysis of the MLB Draft, but when you have a situation like the one involving ballot stuffing like last year, you have to take a break from analyzing prospects and participate in that major issue.
Since last year, ballot stuffing San Francisco Giants fans have taken to their computers, armed with millions of fake e-mail addresses, hoping to send their whole team to the All-Star Game. Last year, the Giants sent four representatives to the All-star game, all of whom were starters: Buster Posey, who did end up deserving it, Melky Cabrera, who won the MVP but ended up getting suspended for PEDs, Pablo Sandoval, who ignited major controversy when he was picked over David Wright, starting the whole ballot stuffing issue, and Matt Cain,who was chosen over R.A. Dickey because Buster Posey couldn’t take half an hour to learn how to catch a knuckleball.
San Francisco won that round, but MLB would not do anything about it. You’d think that they’d learn from their mistakes, and that San Francisco would stopthis scumbaggery, but no.
In the latest vote tally for the All-star game at Citi Field, the Giants are in the top five in all infield categories, with Buster Posey leading the catchers, (angering Cardinals fans who still feel that Yadier Molina is better), Brandon Belt is in third place among first basemen, ahead of more deserving candidates like Allen Craig, Freddie Freeman and Adrian Gonzalez, but at least behind Joey Votto and Paul Goldschmidt. Marco Scutaro is behind only Brandon Phillips in the second base vote, but ahead of more deserving candidates, like Daniel Murphy, Brandon Crawford is second to Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop, but he is still ahead of more deserving candidates like Jean Segura and Peter Kozma. But the biggest travesty of all is Pablo Sandoval upstaging David Wright for the second consecutive year.
First of all, Wright is statistically better than Sandoval. He was running circles around Sandoval last year, and is doing the same this year. He deserves to start for his home city, but those scumbags in San Francisco once again feel that the Giants vs. the AL formula is much better entertainment. Okay, so they won the World series last year, but does that make it excusable this year?
And what’s worse is that they’re not ashamed to admit it. It’s committing electoral fraud, then saying, “Yeah, I screwed up the All-Star game so that I can get my rocks off by seeing my entire team face the best of the AL, what are you going to do about it?”
Well, Scumbag San Francisco Giants fans, here’s what we’re going to do about it. We are going to complain. We are going to tell the commissioner’s office that this is a clear electoral fraud and that your voting rights should be taken away. Heck, most of us feel that it should be done this way. Instead of letting homerism from a bunch of rabid weed smoking hybrid driving, coffee chugging smug-ass San Francisco bastards dictate the way the game is played, we will give the honor to a committee of coaches. At least they have some degree of respect for the system. We will do everything to make sure that this doesn’t happen again, and when you start whining about it, we’ll point out that you screwed up the system in the first place.
“Well, what are you going to do about it?” I’m pretty sure the Giants fans would say. “Are you going to vote for David Wright at least 5000 times in retaliation? ‘Cause if you do that, you’re no better than us.” No, actually, I actually have some degree of restraint. Having exhausted my 35 votes on clearly deserving candidates, I feel that my course of action is done. In short, I am not a rabid homer douche like those excuses for fans in San Francisco.
Let’s end this madness and send the right candidates to Citi Field for the 2013 All-Star game, not just the stupid Giants. And let’s hope that MLB cracks down on this so that we don’t have to deal with this headache every freaking year.
