Is David Freese an MLB All-Star?

The third baseman sent the St. Louis Cardinals to Game 7 of the World Series with his clutch performance, but he hasn't secured a spot on the National League's All-Star Game roster yet. Fans can still vote him in.

Why doesn’t the World Series MVP have a spot on the All-Star team yet? David Freese rescued the St. Louis Cardinals when they were one strike away from losing the World Series twice, and started this season with 13 home runs.

Aside from baseball, he created his own baseball camp, at Six Flags St. Louis and made this 7-year old’s dream come true.

Does that sound like an All-Star to you? Vote here or text N2 to 89269 to cast your ballot for Freese, who is competing against Bryce Harper (Washington Nationals), Michael Bourn (Atlanta Braves) and Aaron Hill (Arizona Diamondbacks).

Freese was in the running against favorite Atlanta Braves' Chipper Jones, when Major League Baseball announced Jones would replace Matt Kemp (Los Angeles Dodgers) on the team. Kemp had to bow out due to an injury Tuesday. 

Teammates Jon Jay (@jonjayU) and Daniel Descalso (@DanielDescalso) are rallying support on Twitter, using the hashtag #FreesePlease to spread the word.

If selected, Freese will join fellow Cardinals Rafael Furcal, Carlos Beltran, Lance Lynn and Yadier Molina.

Vote for St. Louis’s hometown hero before polls close Thursday at 3 p.m. The All-Star Game is July 10 in Kansas City.

Get out there and vote. Go Crazy Folks.

What's interesting here is the time Bryce Harper lost in the race when he did the cool thing and told people to vote for Chipper Jones when Jones was still in the running as a last candidate, in what is his final season. Hard to pinpoint how many votes Harper lost between Sunday and Tuesday. Also saw that Bradley Beal was already getting into the DC spirit by using his twitter account to give Harper a push.
