This is sort of sad, hilarious and scary all at the same time: the Royals have formed an “alliance” with the Cardinals in the All-Star Final Vote thing.
How that even works I have no idea. The Royals fans give Cardinals fans the code to hack the MLB.com voting page? The Cardinals share the Devil Magic which always seems to benefit them to cover the alliance from the more metaphysical side?
More importantly, is there any Cards or Royals fan who really cares so much about the All-Star Final vote that they’d throw in with their cross-state rivals anyway? I don’t know a TON of Cards and Royals fans, but the ones I do tend not to care much for the other side. Folks form St. Louis don’t give a rip if Mike Moustakas makes the All-Star Game. Same with K.C. folks and Carlos Martinez.
But hey, at least some marketing and social media people were kept off the streets today.
UPDATE: So I guess other teams are doing this too, including Tigers/Reds, Yanks/Rockies and Dodgers/Red Sox. Which means it was almost certainly an orchestrated thing from MLB. Wheeee!
