Write-in Campaign for Chris Colabello for All Star Team

Richie the Rally Goat

Per http://blogs.twincities.com/twins/2014/04/24/twinsights-overlooked-again-chris-colabello-was-left-off-the-all-star-ballot/


Chris Colabello will not be on the All-Star Ballot.


It's not too early (well, OK maybe just a bit) to start the write-in campaign.


Being elected by the fans to the All-Star game would seal the deal on a Disney inspirational sports drama starring Mark Walberg.


Who's with me?

But seriously no way would i pick walberg. We need a big italian. A big bearded italian. How about that guy "pussy" from sopranos (no clue what his name is). Lets face it, if its a sports movie it would have to be costner. I could see it. Or maybe a kevin james

Honestly, it's completely out of the hands of anyone to make any changes to the ballot after the season starts? Gimme an effin' break, MLB executives!


But, don't the coaches select the bench players? There might be that going for Colabello.

Since the Twins are the host team don't they get to pick a player to represent them? Mauer has allready been selected for some type of role. I do hope they find a way to put one of the finest and most dedicated ballplayers on the team. Cola Rocks!!

All-Star ballots are a funny deal. I struggle every year to decide if it's completely useless, or a worthwhile endeavor to be excited/offended about the eventual All-Star selections.




I like the mid-summer classic, but the fan voting, especially in the "internet age" is ridiculous. I'd be much happier if they limited the voting to fans at the games, punching out the little holes in the official all-star ballots and letting the coaches or player select the rest.


So many words written, so much internet bandwidth used on the discussion.


Cray cray.


and yet here I am, I love it.
