I GUESS SOME DAYS IT IS EASY BEING GREEN

Why do I have a feeling that, immediately after this picture was taken, your Mets violated the "No Regular-Season Bouncing Scrums" rule?

The Mets are dominating the All Star voting. Last I checked you guys had SS, Outfield, Catcher and I think second.

We're twelve games out of first in probably the worst division in baseball. But Biggio will get 3,000 this week!

Not sure what we're going to do after that.

the "No Regular-Season Bouncing Scrums" rule?

I didn't realize MLB adopted that Two Glasses Rule.

Don't worry, I'm sure the Yanks'll get their chance one of these days.

Dwilk, I haven't followed the All-Star voting, but I think Reyes & Beltran should be starters. Beltran is the NL's best Center Fielder and along with Henley Ramirez, Reyes is the best SS.

But LoDuca? No. And while Wright should make the squad, he shouldn't start over Miguel Cabrera. No way.

Actually, I think Russell Martin, who certainly has played like an All-Star this season, has the lead at catcher.

I loved this photo, too--they ran it in the LA Times. But cropped LoDuca out--wonder if that was intentionally, since so many out here are still convinced the team shouldn't have traded him.

Miggy is a better hitter than Wright, no doubt, although he might end up at firstbase faster if he doesn't keep the weight off.

Martin is in fourth place behind LoDuca, McCann and Estrada.

Right now Reyes, Wright and LoDuca are all ahead by over 100k votes, and Beltran by over 200k.

Its interesting. I haven't had an opportunity to watch the Mets this year. The thing I liked about them last year was their apparent enthusiasm - a fun team to watch in the playoffs.

Heh. Biggio is in second place in the NL at second. Victory lap I guess.

No, Martin has moved into first. You linked to the May 29 totals. Here's the new leaderboard.

Ah sorry, my bad. I wonder how I did that? I must have gotten linked to it through an older story.

Anyhoo, the voting is way up now from the graph I linked.

Hmm. I don't think Fielder belongs ahead of Pujols.

I was going to say I dunno what Griffey is doing there but his numbers are nice this year. .965 OPS, 21 HR, hitting .290. I've only seen him once this year and he didn't impress.
