Go to the Polls for Placido! All Star Campaign

The "evil empire" of the New York Yankees must be stopped. Despite being one of Major League Baseball's biggest disappointments so far this season, the New York Yankees continue to do well in fan voting for the 2007 Major League Baseball Star Game, with three players (Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, and Robinson Cano) leading the voting at their positions. Detroit Tigers fans and fans of baseball need to do something about that, because while Jeter and A-Rod may deserve a trip to San Fransisco to start for the American League, certainly, Robinson Cano does not. And Placido Polanco of the Detroit Tigers certainly does. Polanco, as of last count was some 8,000 votes behind Cano (381,051 to Cano's 389,265 votes) which is why we need to start the "Go to the Polls for Placido!" All Star Voting Campaign (full credit goes to my buddy David for the name).

Let's take a look at the numbers, just to further prove our point.

Robinson Cano: Batting Average: .275
Placido Polanco: Batting Average: .345

Robinson Cano: RBI: 29
Placido Polanco: RBI: 32

Robinson Cano: On Base Percentage: .314
Placido Polanco: On Base Percentage: .389

And now, what I think is one of the most important stats:

Robinson Cano: Batting Average with runners in scoring position: .194
Placido Polanco: Batting Average with runners in scoring position: .429

As you can see, in practically every category, Polanco has the edge, and in some of the most important, including batting average, on base percentage, and especially batting average with runners in scoring position, Polanco clearly outshines Cano. And what Polanco adds to the Tigers team, in terms of leadership and his defensive ability (0 errors compared to 6 for Cano) further shows he deserves his first career start in an All Star Game. Yet, because of the fan support from New York Yankees fans, as of right now, Cano would be starting in the All Star Game. Tigers fans throughout the blogosphere need to come together and encourage their visitors and their fans to vote for Placido Polanco (and the other Tigers as well) to start in the All Star Game. Here's how you can help.

1) Fill out as many paper ballots as you can while attending Detroit Tigers games at Comerica Park.

2) Head on over to Major League Baseball's on-line voting system and VOTE!. You can vote up to 25 times on-line.

3) Encourage your friends, colleagues, and visitors (if you run a Detroit sports blog) to "Go to the Polls For Placido!" and vote. Use the button below to "Digg!" this story and help get the word out to the general blogosphere and Tigers fans across the internet.

We can help Placido get to the All Star Game and it's time to get the ball rolling on this campaign on-line. So let's spread the word and start Going to the Polls for Placido!.

Great effort! Linking to you from Tiger All Star Voting: Push for Placido (and Magglio & Pudge) on Absolute Michigan.

A total crime that Ordonez is 5th. He's leading the majors in BA and 2nd in RBI!!

Was going to vote for some of the tigers but not after tiger's fans bitching. I mean people want to see players they want. I mean Placido is going to Fade out Cano is the best 2b in the AL. Placido is a fluke. With your logic JJ Hardy should be a allstar since he got alot of homeruns.
