As of this morning, Justin Morneau was in second place in the National League in the MLB All-Star Game final vote.
Anthony Rizzo had passed him, but the race was close, according to MLB.com.
As of this morning, MLB.com writes:
Rizzo had less than two percent more votes than Morneau, who continues to have huge supplemental support from his former fan base in the state of Minnesota, where he was a four-time All-Star for the Twins
The voting closes at 3 p.m. central. Jumping on board the #VoteMorneau bandwagon Thursday were several Minnesota athletes, and prominent one -- the Great One -- from Canada.
Here are some short messages, collected online mostly from Dustin Morse, the Twins director of baseball communications.
