Want to piss off Bruce Bochy and the Giants? Would you like to annoy San Francisco? Who wouldn’t want to annoy SF, am I right? Then vote Yasiel Puig into the all-star game! Remember Bruce Bochy refused to select Puig as a reserve for the all-star game and does not consider him an all-star. Puig needs our help.
So in order to piss off Bochy and the Giants, the Dodgers are trying to get Puig into the all-star game. Adrian Gonzalez is also nominated on the ticket, but getting Puig in is the real goal.
The final vote is a chance for fans to vote in a player for the final spot on the National League’s all-star game roster. Five players are chosen to run, and the fans pick the winner via vote. Fans can vote online as many times as they want from now until the campaign ends on July 11.
The five players chosen for the final vote are Dodgers Puig, Adrian Gonzalez, Freddie Freeman of the Braves, Hunter Pence of the Giants, and Ian Desmond of the Nationals. As of right now, Puig is trailing Freeman so he needs all your support to get to the all-star game at Citi Field on July 16.
The Dodgers will be holding viewing and voting parties over the next few days in various places around Los Angeles. The first of these viewing/voting parties will be held tonight at Barney’s Beanery in Burbank while the Dodgers are playing the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight at Chase Field. Puig’s campaign manager Steve Garvey, who is the last player to be written into the all-star game will be on hand for Monday and Tuesday night’s events. The crew from Fox Sports AM 570 will also be there.
Prizes and tickets will be given away during game commercial breaks. The Ultimate Puig Fan will be given the opportunity to meet Puig in person on Sunday, July 14th, Puig T-Shirt Day at Dodger Stadium. Fans are urged to show their Puigmania, and the craziest most fun fan will be chosen each night.
Here is where the viewing/voting parties will be held. The first one begins tonight at 6:30 PM at Barney’s Beanery in Burbank.
