MLBAM announced this morning that A.J. Pierzynski is running a close second to Minnesota’s young pitcher Francisco Liriano in on-line voting for the 32nd member of the 2006 AL All-Star Team. Voting ends at 5 pm CT tomorrow.
So all this means is that White Sox fans need to step it up in voting for the guy everyone else in the AL loves to hate.
We did some overnight polling and found that, as expected, AJ is showing poorly in Minnesota, San Francisco, Houston, the North Side and in the Orange County/Anaheim area. It is the Chicago vote that is keeping him on pace with Liriano, so Sox fans need to keep hammering away at your keyboards.
X-rays on Joe Crede were negative, so the third baseman is listed as day to day after being hit by a pitch yesterday.
