2012 Phungo #51 Carlos Ruiz
I don't know how often the update the All-Star Voting, but last week when I was at a Phillies game Carlos Ruiz was in 3rd place among catchers.
Phillies Scoreboard w/ All-Star Voting for Catchers 2012 06 19
FWIW I really didn't have the right to bitch to much last week since I had not yet voted. I don't take the All-Star game voting too seriously. For me it used to be more fun when you had to do it at the ballpark - now that I can do it anytime it seems less urgent. Sort of like how I blow off TV shows that are ON-Demand, then I never come back to watch them. modern problems.
As I said I don't take it too seriously, but over the weekend I did go on and #VoteChooch. Of course the rest of my ballot was a farce - Chase Utely hasn't set a foot (or bad knee) on the field and I voted for him. A lot of times I just vote for guys from my area, but I had trouble finding one - Chris Heisey wasn't on the ballot. I voted for Marlon Byrd (NL OF) just because I am pretty sure he was last spotted playing for an AL team (BoSox). Chris Davis got a vote just for earning a Pitchiing Win in a game despite the fact that he is a position player. They are like jokes only for myself.
There are hashtags on Twitter to reference specific people, subjects, events etc. One of the ones that has emerged is #VoteChooch to remind folks to Vote for Carlos Ruiz in the All-Star Balloting. I am farily sure this is the first time that I have referenced a #hasntag here, and I got off my butt and voted - so Twitter you have finally made a difference.
