Video: White Sox want Alexei Ramirez in the All-Star game


 

The Chicago White Sox have released a video to help vote shortstop Alexei Ramirez into the 2014 MLB All-Star game at Target Field.

Click here to see the video.

In an MLB press release on Monday, June 30, it says:

“Thirteen-time American League All-Star Derek Jeter (2,924,686) of the New York Yankees remains ahead of Alexei Ramirez (2,325,527) of the Chicago White Sox at shortstop.”

The current White Sox Twitter and Facebook hashtag for Ramirez is #‎VoteMissile.

This season, Ramirez is batting .298 with eight home runs and 39 RBIs. His on-base percentage is .329.

Jeter is playing the final season of his Hall of Fame career for the Yankees. This season, Jeter is batting .275 with two home runs and 19 RBIs.

Ramierz has the unfortunate uphill battle ahead of him because Jeter’s entire 19-year career is being considered here (and his five World Series championships) and not his numbers for this season.

I don’t think it is fair, but the fans are the ones who vote in the starters, and it looks as though Jeter will get his final farewell with a start in the All-Star game, unless Ramirez gets a big surge in the vote in the coming days.
