Cardinals attempt to rock the vote by swaying voters using rather old-fashioned tactics that involve sensory overload of some kind. In this case, they have started the “Vote to send Cardinals to All-Star Game” ad campaign with a questionable list of choices. According to this screenshot taken from the Cardinals.com website just a few days ago, the Cardinals want you to consider voting for Yadier Molina, Yadier Molina, Yadier Molina, Yadier Molina, Yadier Molina, Matt Holliday, Lance Berkman, and Yadier Molina. It would seem that the great starts of Carlos Beltran and Jon Jay are being overlooked in favor of some no-name guy the Cardinals are pushing for this time around. Interesting approach to getting Molina’s name out there to say the least. We’ll see if this works.
It took a while to make the connection. Matheny finally tipped his hand when asked about baseball injuries when he suggested that “pain don’t hurt”. Really, it was a shame that we all missed the most obvious clue which was his jersey number. Matheny wears “22” which represents the “Double Deuce”.
Matt Adams appears ready to take down Kobayashi at Nathan’s again this year. And to think you were all wondering how Adams kept in shape for baseball season.
