After hearing the news that Manny Ramirez was fourth in All-Star voting so far this season, Jason Rosenburg decided to take action.
And so Vote For Manny was born. There is no rule from keeping Manny off the ballet, since he is eligible to return to baseball on July 3, which is 11 days before the All-Star game in St. Louis. He trails only Milwaukee’s Ryan Braun, Alfonso Soriano of the Chicago Cubs and the New York Mets’ Carlos Beltran.
However, the Los Angeles Dodgers plan -- if they do indeed have one -- is to stick Ramirez in the minors before he's allowed to re-join the Dodgers' outfield. In case you've been living under a rock, the almost 36-year-old butterfly-chaser was suspended for 50 games on May 7th after his drug test showed artificial testosterone, a banned female fertility drug prescribed to some people after they finish a steroid cycle to restart natural testosterone production.
Update: Some upset Dodgers fan has found the Vote for Manny site a bit lame and thus has created Vote for Pierre. Um, good luck to the both of you. Man, this is stupid.
