It was inevitable: the campaign for the last All-Star roster spot goes negative

Jul 7, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

Mr. Swisher, your campaign has all the momentum of a runaway freight train. What makes you so popular?

I spent a lot of my time in the law litigating election cases, so if the Swisher people feel like suing the Youkilis people over their latest attack ad in the campaign for the final All-Star Game roster spot, they should feel free to give me a call.

Initial consultation is free.

    Isn’t it now obvious? Swisher is going to destroy our coun….. Umm Pastime.

    Hey! The ad calls Youkilis Greek, when it’s well-established that his is of Jewish Hungarian discent. That is some Swift-Boat level nonsense, right there.

    He is or at least was The Greek God of Walks.

    It’s so hard to choose between yet another Yankee and yet another Red Sock. Who, like everyone ever associated with the team is hurting and will skip the game anyway.
    If I cared to vote, that is.

    Im not sure what part of the video is funniest. The no facial hair, engaged to a scientoligist or not approved by tom emansky… well played.

    That was a pretty lame stunt for the RSN to pull off.

    He fails to mention that if the Youk was lucky enough to sign with the Spankees, he too would be sans beard, since the Evil Empire has a strict grooming policy (even benched Mattingly wor not getting a haircut!).

    They even gave Mattingly grief over the ‘stache. Jason Giambi ran right into that policy as well.

    Hey, since you hate the Red Sox and the Yankees so much, maybe you could go vote for, I dunno, one of the non-Sox/Yankee players that Major League Baseball somehow put in the balloting. Nah, probably better to just bitch about Swisher and Youkilis for their crimes of being good at baseball, playing for great teams, and having lots of fans. Those stupid jerks!
