Vote or Die, Rock the Vote, etc.

I genuinely don't much care about the All-Star game, and I'm really happy to see Roberts and Tejada leading the votes at second base and shortstop, but seriously, everyone go stuff the ballots for Mark Teixeira, because Tino Martinez starting the All-Star game would be a crying shame. Teixeira is not only the most deserving but the only one who has a chance of catching Martinez and knocking him out of the game. I have to think this will annoy enough people that Teixeira will catch up by word of Yankee-hating mouth.

I'd say vote for Miguel Cabrera and two other guys that aren't Beltran, too, but Beltran has a very healthy lead and isn't going to be caught by anyone below the third spot.
