What's buzzing on Yahoo Sports:


Where are all the catchy All-Star campaign slogans?

I'm taking a look at the 10 players who are up for the two Final Vote All-Star spots and I'm a little surprised at the small amount of creativity the participating teams are showing through their vote campaigns.

So far, in Milwaukee, there's the solid and NL vote-leading "I (Hart) New York" effort for Corey Hart.

And in New York, there's the mildly clever "Vote Wright Now" for David Wright and the furlip-fueled "Support the 'Stache" movement for Jason Giambi, complete with the backing of the American Mustache Institute.

But apart from a couple of customized "Vote (Blank)" logos for Jermaine Dye, Carlos Lee and Aaron Rowand, every other marketing team is dropping the ball on what is a great opportunity to build on a following for their players, if not get him elected to the game at Yankee Stadium.

So let's do their work for them. In the comments below, leave your best campaign slogan for any or all of the eligible players and I'll name the best in a post later this week. If you're bored at work and inclined to fool around with Photoshop a bit, don't be afraid to whip something up and send it to bigleaguestew@yahoo.com for posting.

BLS contributor David Brown has already sent along a contribution for Evan Longoria — "Desperate for Votes" — and I'm going to suggest "Vote Or Dye Trying" for Jermaine Dye and the White Sox, who had a similar team slogan back in '05.

Have at it, folks.
