With the Dodgers playing a rather boring series at the Washington Nationals, it’s time to take care of some housecleaning.

All Star Voting

Yesterday, Major League Baseball released the preliminary results of the first period of fan voting for the All Star Game. The fan votes will determine which position players start the game. According to the results, My Boyfriend is running a distant fourth to the fiery whoring gambler Paul Lo Duca (former Dodger and current New York Met), a far inferior Brian McCann of the Atlanta Braves and a nondescript Johnny Estrada from the Brewers.

Make sure to vote for My Boyfriend. If he ends up not starting I will unleash my fury upon the masses here in Los Angeles that will cause even more gridlock on the freeways, the complete disappearance of all bike lanes and a plague of biblical proportions not seen since the time of Moses.

All kidding aside, here is my helpful unbiased guide to whom I think should be starting the game for the National League:

1B – Prince Fielder, Milwaukee Brewers
2B – Chase Utley, Philadelphia Phillies
SS – Jose Reyes, New York Mets
3B – Miguel Cabrera, Florida Marlins
C – Russell Martin, Los Angeles Dodgers
OF – Moises Alou, New York Mets
OF – Carlos Lee, Houston Astros
OF – Matt Holliday, Colorado Rockies.

As for the American League, screw them. I find it sad they still use that crutch, the designated hitter.
