    PM me if you'd rather not post it on the board.

    Well I voted for me, my brother, my dad, my mom, and my grandparents today so far... I'm in the process of looking up for family members to vote for them...

    Did you vote once for each of them or 25 times? All from the same computer?

    I'm stumped.

    Exactly the right idea. Don't leave the ballpark without a backpack full of ballots. I'm trying to get some folks to grab a pile from Sox games for me so that I can submit them when I go.

    And I'm all for people voting a full ballot, but it is easier if you just punch out one or a few holes on each one. Larkin's the guy who plays the position where the leaders will have low vote totals, meaning he's most likely the guy to whom we can give a serious bump.

    Controversy surrounded the 1957 outing as the fanatical Cincinnati voters stuffed the ballot boxes and elected their entire team (minus the batboy) onto the National League's starting roster. This upset Commissioner Ford Frick greatly and he responded by removing Gus Bell and Wally Post from the starting nine. He also transferred the responsibility for All-Star voting to the players, managers and coaches the next year.

    I dont think MLB minds stuffing the ballot box...all fans now have equal opportunity to stuff the ballot box so whoever has a more effective drive wins.

    Well, I just voted for Barry 50 times and when I get more time I have 50 more that I can throw his way. After that I will have to figure out a way to vote more for him. Oh, and i also voted for Casey, Junior and Jose Guillen all 50 times. If nothing else at least I am loyal.

    I've always believed tradition is an essential part of the game of baseball. The BRM also enjoyed some healthy ballot box stuffing -- deservedly so, but it happened nonetheless. I submit that as Reds fans it's our duty to stuff the ballot box, just as our forefathers did.

    Plus, this really is a case of you being able to do something for your team, most notably the guy who's spent his entire career playing his tail off for your team. IMO, we have it within our ability on Redszone to make the NL SS vote an extremely interesting contest.

    It would also show the power of SERP.
