The Red Sox should be shut out on the All-Star ballot. The team will have their own Minister of Propaganda putting out info into cyberspace on getting out the vote – I’m not sure if they are actually serious? No hanging chads in this election as the number of Red Sox players that deserve to be selected amounts to zero. Nada. Zilch. Ballot stuffing? Even the most ardent, passionate, and jingoistic Red Sox loyalist knows that this season they deserve a ballot shutout.

So let us take a peek at how the latest members of the Underperforming 200,000,000M Club are doing and why they should be omitted and just about anyone else named.

Currently the Red Sox have a grand total of four players that are mentioned in the early balloting. This is just a baseball caucus at this time and the votes will continue to accumulate as the season moves into June. If the current trend continues the Red Sox players on the ballot will certainly be an endangered species.

If I was Ned Yost and had to pick the obligated player I would select Koji Uehara despite his melt down on Sunday.
