The folks in the Reds Marketing department wanted to make sure I pass along some timely information about this year’s All-Star voting. Give it a quick read, and don’t forget to cast your ballots. It looks like Ken Griffey Jr. will need a final push from Reds fans to earn a starting role on the National League squad.

Only two days remain to cast your All-Star ballots for the 2006 All-Star Game at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park! Updated vote totals were posted yesterday, and Ken Griffey Jr. is just one spot away from a starting role on the team.
So Reds fan, he needs your help.
Here a few points to keep in mind:
- You can vote online up to 25 times, and it only takes five minutes or so to cast all 25 ballots.
- You MUST cast your ballots by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday.
- Don’t forget that you’ll need to "write in" Brandon Phillips (.310, 7 HR, 43 RBIs, 14 SBs) for second base and David Ross (.323, 10 HRs, 25 RBIs, 1.094 OPS) for catcher.
- Don’t worry about Bronson Arroyo (9-4, 2.58 ERA, 84 Ks). Fans can’t vote for pitchers, but we’re confident that Phil Garner, this year’s NL All-Star manager, has a spot reserved for him.
