Let's Embarrass the Nationals

Okay, we all remember Lastings Milledge, yes?  Good.  As of right now, he plays for Washington's AAA team.  That's right, he's not even being used as a regular on the Nationals.  I don't know why either, because it's not like the people they have are playing at major league caliber.

BUT, and this is the important part: he's on the All-Star ballot.

Gentlemen, should you choose to accept it, it is our mission to make the Nationals be represented in the All-Star Game by someone they think isn't good enough to be on their 25-man roster.  You may vote 25 times per day per email address.  If we get enough people involved, we can do this.

Benefits from doing this:

1. Exposing the All-Star Game for the farce that it is.

2. Securing Carlos Beltran a starting spot by making sure that his competition is being replaced by Lastings Milledge.

3. Setting a new record for shortest appearance by an All-Star starter ever (has anyone ever been pulled for a pinch-hitter in the first inning?)

4. Causing Mike Lupicka's head to explode on the Sports Reporters.

So... shall we?  Go to mlb.com and vote for Lastings Milledge.  The more ex-Mets on the team the better... and the dumber the ASG is, the better.  The Red Sox fans (SoSH) are already doing this full-blast.  Let's make it a league-wide act.
