Tigers Need Some All-Star Votes, Quickly
Well, Tigers Fans, the last month of baseball hasn't been great for the Motor City Bengals. And, the nation is taking notice. MLB.com released the latest vote tallies for this season's All-Star Game today VIA Twitter. After leading the race, handily, for first base the past three seasons, Miguel Cabrera is now second in the voting, trailing Kansas City's Eric Hosmer by more than 600,000 votes. In fact, seven Royals players lead their positions in voting right now, with second baseman and former Tiger Omar Infante less than 160,000 votes behind Houston's Jose Altuve. (Ian Kinsler is a distant 5th place) Tigers' Shortstop Jose Iglesias, like Cabrera, trails a Royal for his top spot, but needs to make up ground to the tune of over 2 million votes to catch Alcides Escobar.
I know it's been a frustrating few weeks, fellow fans. But, these guys aren't done yet!! There's lots of baseball left. and, there is no way we should let all of these stinking Royals soak up the votes!! Show your stripes, Tiger Town! Vote up to 35 times with this link before July 2!
