Earlier this week, my brethren writers shared their opinions on the final vote. Craig wrote about why he was voting for El Gallo, while Joe compared Carlos Martinez and Clayton Kershaw, another final vote candidate. Throughout my tenure writing these Hunt and Peck posts, I have always attempted to maintain a least a modicum of professionalism (ha). But today, that goes out the window.
*looks directly into camera*
Carlos Martinez is a fun player, a talented pitcher, and the type of person that would fully embrace being called a rooster by some interned nerds. If that does not earn him an All Star Appearance, I do not know what does. So VOTE FOR HIM. DO IT NOW. I DO NOT CARE IF YOUR FINGERS ARE TIRED FROM TYPING. THERE IS NO CRYING IN ALL STAR VOTING.
I have a Mountain Dew and lots of time on my hands. LET'S DO THIS. *cracks knuckles
