MLB All-Star Final Vote 2013: Making the Case for Final Roster Spot Candidates

Now that the debate and rage over the All-Star rosters has cooled down, it is time to start looking at what will come of the Final Vote controlled by the fans that ends on Thursday. 

It is very much a tale of two leagues this year. The anticipation for the National League vote is actually holding our attention because there is some very real star power in there and because the American League is filled out by a bunch of middle relievers. 

I don't know about you, but nothing screams excitement voting for an All-Star Game like putting a reliever on the roster. 

The NL hopefuls include Washington's Ian Desmond, Atlanta's Freddie Freeman, San Francisco's Hunter Pence and two Dodgers in Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig. 

The junior circuit ballot includes Detroit's Joaquin Benoit, Toronto's Steve Delabar, New York's David Robertson, Texas' Tanner Scheppers and Boston's Koji Uehara. 

What we want to do is influence your vote by making a case for all 10 All-Star hopefuls through a combination of stats, star power and merit.
