Lastings Milledge is on the MLB All-Star Game ballot. This is probably because he was a starting outfielder for the Nats when the season began before being quickly demoted to Triple A Syracuse, and anyone who has spent anytime at all in a starting line-up appears on the All-Star ballot. Whatever, who fucking cares why he’s on the ballot? The game is a compete joke. For further evidence of this please see the first sentence of this post.
But hey, maybe we can at least make this year’s mid-season joke funny. How, you ask? Well, we could help get Lastings voted into the game. This would be funny, you see, because he is still stuck in Triple A, where he ain’t takin’ no shit from nobody and where he will likely spend a good deal more time. Take a moment to consider how hilariously awesome it would be for the Nats to have a player in the All-Star game who isn’t even in the majors. How would that even work? Would he be called up by Major League Baseball to participate? I don’t have the answers, but I’d LOVE to find out.
If the Nats are gonna be the most pathetic franchise in baseball, they may as well turn it up to 11, right? Right. Now go here and vote or die. Because Lastings said so.
