Uehara Running In Second Place In ASG Voting

Koji Headed To Flushing?
Online fan voting has placed Red Sox reliever Koji Uehara in second place for the final All-Star roster spot. Blue Jays reliever Steve Delabar leads the voting, followed by David Robertson of the Evil Ones, Joaquin Benoit of the Tigers and Tanner Scheppers of the Rangers. Uehara—despite blowing a save in Saturday's disaster in Anaheim—has had a stellar 2013 campaign. Interestingly, supposed savior of baseball Yasiel Puig is in second place in the NL voting—behind Freddie Freeman of the Braves. Apparently, the surf is up in La-La Land. "Dude, do you take the 405 to get to Dodger stadium?"
