Why doesn’t the World Series MVP have a spot on the All-Star team yet? David Freese rescued the St. Louis Cardinals when they were one strike away from losing the World Series twice, and started this season with 13 home runs.
Does that sound like an All-Star to you, Hazelwood? Vote here or text N2 to 89269 to cast your ballot for Freese, who is competing against Bryce Harper (Washington Nationals), Michael Bourn (Atlanta Braves) and Aaron Hill (Arizona Diamondbacks).
Freese was in the running against favorite Atlanta Braves' Chipper Jones, when Major League Baseball announced Jones would replace Matt Kemp (Los Angeles Dodgers) on the team. Kemp had to bow out due to an injury Tuesday.
If selected, Freese will join fellow Cardinals Rafael Furcal, Carlos Beltran, Lance Lynn and Yadier Molina.
Vote for St. Louis’s hometown hero before polls close Thursday at 3 p.m. The All-Star Game is July 10 in Kansas City.
Get out there and vote. Go Crazy Folks.
