Don't see anywhere else to put this, but they released the All-Star ballot:

Ballot!

Vote for Kirk Nieuwenhuis! Already back in AAA!

Seriously, the Mets have Duda, Baxter and Nieuwnhuis on there. When did they have to get their picks in, March 10?

Don't see anywhere else to put this, but they released the All-Star ballot:
