One extra reason to vote for Ian Kinsler
the Angels and Dodgers have forged an alliance, with Angels fans
agreeing to vote for Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp as long as Dodgers fans agree
to vote for Angels third baseman Chone Figgins in the fan balloting for the
final player on the AL and NL All-Star Game rosters.
day into the vote, Ian Kinsler has an early but narrow lead over Brandon Inge
and fellow finalists Figgins, Adam Lind, and Carlos Pena for the final AL roster spot.
some added incentive for the Newberg Report community to help send Kinsler to St. Louis:
Kinsler wins the vote, Cristina Barbosa-Young and Tess Kinsler and their
husbands Michael and Ian will treat one Newberg Report reader who voted, and a
guest, to dinner at Bob’s Steak and Chop House in Dallas on an upcoming off-day.
the standard All-Star Game vote that concluded last week, there is no limit to
the number of times you can vote to help Kinsler hold his lead to become the 33rd
player on the AL
