D-Backs, Rays team up on final vote

Posted on: July 3, 2011 5:11 pm
 
I loved the "Punch A.J." campaign the White Sox ran to get A.J. Pierzynski elected as the final All-Star in 2006.

But now, it seems, it's all about teaming up.

The Diamondbacks and Rays announced Sunday that they'll work together to try to get votes for Ian Kennedy of Arizona and Ben Zobrist of Tampa Bay.

It's the same thing the Phillies and Tigers did two years ago, when their "Bran-Torino" campaign succeeded in getting both Shane Victorino and Brandon Inge voted into the game. It's the same thing the Reds and Red Sox did last year, when they succeeded in getting Joey Votto elected, but saw Kevin Youkilis lose out to Nick Swisher.

Can it work for Arizona and Tampa Bay?

It might be tough, based on voting history. Neither the Rays nor the Diamondbacks did well in the overall fan balloting. Neither team had a player elected. Maybe if they can come up with a snappy slogan, that would help.

Kennedy is up against Victorino, Michael Morse, Andre Ethier and Todd Helton in the NL. Zobrist is facing Alex Gordon, Adam Jones, Paul Konerko and Victor Martinez in the AL.

Voting continues through 3 p.m. ET on Thursday, at mlb.com.
