Picking All-Star Final Vote based on each team’s pitch

Michelle R. Martinelli.

While the MLB All-Star Game rosters are nearly set for next week’s midsummer classic, fans can still vote one more player onto each league’s team.

The Final Vote keeps the door open for one of five National and American League players to still make the roster, and the voting is open until 4 p.M. ET on Wednesday. The leaderboard was released by MLB on Tuesday, and here’s what it looks like.

Now, we could make arguments for why you should vote for each player based on stats, recent performances, the team they represent, yada, yada, yada. Or we could help you figure out who to vote for based on respective team’s pitches, which seems like way more fun. So here goes.

National League

1. WWE and dad jokes for Brandon Belt

The San Francisco Giants easily win this one with Hunter Pence and Derek Holland’s outrageously hilarious WWE-style performance while they argue for their first baseman to make the All-Star roster. Plus, we here at For The Win are huge fans of dad jokes, and this one is pretty great.

2. Doughnuts and fatheads for Jesús Aguilar

The Milwaukee Brewers gave out “Sweet Jesús” doughnuts to fans who voted for Aguilar on Tuesday, and they’ve turned this into a true campaign with fatheads, posters, t-shirts and signs for your front lawn reading, “We believe in Jesús”. But really, you had us at doughnuts.

3. Tickets for Trea Turner

Several Washington Nationals players have made their pitches for their team’s speedy shortstop, but slugger Bryce Harper has gone as far as bribing fans with All-Star Game tickets. That’s a pretty tempting offer.

4. Magic for Max Muncy

If Magic Johnson asks for a favor, how can you say no to him?

5. Baseball things for Matt Carpenter

If you want to get all technical about it, this is, in fact, a baseball vote for a spot on a baseball roster. So I guess baseball highlights work as an argument. But are they as good as doughnuts?

American League

1. Bennie and the Jets for Andrew Benintendi

Boston Red Sox’s Brock Holt has so much love for Benintendi that he became the Final Vote campaign manager. He’s made internet videos, photobombed a Benintendi interview with a fathead and even changed his walk-up song to Elton John’s Bennie and the Jets. That’s love.

2. Lion King for Andrelton Simmons

We are so here for all the Lion King references for the Los Angeles Angels shortstop. Plus, it led to Mike Trout attempting to sing the opening lines of one of the movie’s most famous songs.

3. Roses for Eddie Rosario

Cue all The Bachelorette references because that’s how the Minnesota Twins are playing this one. If you’re a fan of the show and Becca, this is an easy sell.

4. Jeans and GIFs for Jean Segura

There are so many puns being made about the Seattle Mariners infielder’s first name, and the team is taking advantage. But we’re also enjoying the jeans on jeans on jeans. And if this GIF doesn’t make you love the Seattle Mariners infielder, nothing will.

5. No shirts for Giancarlo Stanton

The New York Yankees basically just got their players to rally behind Stanton, which is fine, I guess.
