MLB gave their first update on the state of NL All-Star Balloting yesterday. For everyone that had any reservations about the Neifi Write-in campaign, I have a bit of information that should remove any lingering moral scruples...
Nomar Garciaparra is the top NL vote-getter at SS.
1. Garciaparra, N. Cubs 235,899
2. Eckstein, D. Cardinals 212,209
3. Furcal, R. Braves 212,160
4. Reyes, J. Mets 189,929
5. Barmes, C. Rockies 183,338
The three best SS in the NL this year, arguably, have been Barmes, Izturis, and Neifi.
Neifi needs you.
(So does Derrek Lee, who has less than half the votes of Pujols.)
