"Punch" A.J.

Hey everyone in blogland. Please go here (then click the appropriate link below the headline) and vote for A.J. Pierzynski for the final spot on the all star roster. You can vote 25 times per email address.

It was glorious when A.J. got his revenge on the Cubs' catcher Barrett by hitting the 3-run homer to win Saturday's game at Wrigley. (and despite having to go to Wrigley to see it I'm glad I was there) But it would be even more beautiful for him to get to the All-Star game through this ingenious campaign.

By the way, I have to say my first experiences at Wrigley were not that great and honestly I don't care to ever return. I was going to go on with a list of complaints but there's no point. I'm sure people love it for their reasons just as I love Sox Park for mine. But I came to this town totally neutral, if not leaning for the Cubs (after all I am from Iowa). But after experiencing obnoxious fans on the train, in and around Wrigleyville and now inside their own park I know I made the right choice. I would be ashamed if I were associated with them after seeing what the fans did to the field on Saturday--throwing cups and trash and cubs hats--out on the field because of A.J.'s homer. What sorry sad losers. I was also annoyed by having to watch where I was walking because there was so much trash on the concourses as we left, come on people throw your stuff away in cans like civilized people.

Anyway, that's all. Now go vote for A.J.

Amanda, I totally agree. I came here not really caring about baseball at all, but the Wrigley experience was and continues to be really negative for me.

Also, there's the whole good team/bad team issue.
