rangers fans want Justin Morneau in all-star game

a lot of us over at lonestarball have talked about voting for Justin Morneau over Kevin Youkillis for a couple reasons, the main one being that he deserves it.  the 2nd reason?  the red sox/yankee monopoly on the all star game.

we have suggested a sort of agreement with twins fans.  you see, ian kinsler is very deserving to be an all star.  he is currently 2nd to dustin pedroia. 

i'm sure most fans who aren't in the northeast would love to end the yankee/red sox stronghold on the all star game.  i'm also sure lots of rangers/twins fans go straight ticket for their team.  that isn't any better than what THEY do.  not asking for you to vote for an undeserving player, and i'm not suggesting that the rangers fans would vote for an undeserving player. just wanting all of us, offsprings of different washington senators franchises to work together to make sure the red sox fans do not overwhelm the all star team with players that don't necessarily deserve to be there.

youkilis= .304/.376/.540, 13 HR, 47 RBI, 139 OPS +

justin morneau = .305/.362/.485,  11 HR, 59 RBI, 131 OPS+

 

pedroia = .282/.328/.408, 6 HR, 8 SB, 32 RBI, 94 OPS+

kinsler = .305/.362/.502, 12 HR, 19 SB, 47 RBI, 131 OPS+

 

why the focus on morneau?  he's only 270,000 back

why the focus on kinsler? he's only 166,000 back
