Miami Marlins Ichiro Suzuki Needs Your ASG Vote
It’s clutch time Marlins fans, and an all-time great needs your help. It’s time to vote Miami Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki into this year’s MLB All-Star Game in San Diego.
And really, you don’t even need to be a Marlins fan to heed this cry. Just a fan of Gold Glove caliber defense, of stolen bases, of many, many singles. A devotee of the utmost professionalism day in and day out, a believer that the All-Star Game is first and foremost about honoring the “Game”, even if “this one counts” for home-field advantage in the Fall Classic. In short, do this if you’re a baseball fan.

So go to this ballot, and vote for Ichiro. Many, many times. Tell your friends, or at least use their email accounts.
Now, you might be wondering at this point how do you do this. Ichiro is not a starting outfielder, and thus is not officially on the ballot. You can, however, write-in any player you feel is deserving of the honor of playing in All-Star Game. You get to pick who is #ASGWorthy as it were.
Of course, and especially if you’re a straight party voter, this means not voting for someone. Either another Marlin, someone’s who having an All-Star caliber season as a starter, or both.
What I say to this though is that you get to fill out up to twenty-five ballots if you haven’t voted at all yet and start doing so daily today. And each time you vote, pick a player to swap out. Spread the load between those three Marlins outfielders. Heck, write Ichiro in at another position if the idea of ever not voting for Marcell Ozuna, Giancarlo Stanton, and Christian Yelich is too distressing; I just voted for him five times as a first-baseman. It lets you.
Bottom line, Ichiro is having an All-Star year. He’s batting .350, which would rank as his fifth best season in terms of final average if it held up. He’s also passed Pete “Grumpy Pants” Rose for the technical honor of most career professional hits, and at the MLB level is hard charging for becoming the 30th player in MLB history to reach 3000 hits at that level. He still might even do so by the All-Star break, although that is becoming a little less likely as Stanton is starting to return to form.
So here’s the ballot one more time. Mission here is get Ichiro’s name out there as much as possible, so Major League Baseball takes a good long look at according a special honor on one of this generation’s most special players.
