Congratulations folks. Your efforts at stuffing the ballot box for Matt Kemp worked. He has just been named as a starter to the 2011 All-Star Game in Arizona. This will be his first appearance on the squad, and I'm sure he will do us proud.
Fortunately, Kemp won't be lonely in that clubhouse. Dodger ace Clayton Kershaw has also been selected as one of the 8 starters for the National League. This will also be his very first appearance in the All-Star Game.
And to prove that 3 isn't a crowd. Andre Ethier is now a participant in the Final Vote competition to fill the final spot on the National League roster. He is up against 4 other worthy candidates, so go here to make sure he comes out the winner. Voting starts now!
