I posted this a few days back. There are now 5 days left in open voting, and David Mauro's got the weight of Dailykos.com behind him, so I figured the time was ripe for a re-post.
Many of the people on this site are familiar with David Cameron, one of the guys behind the USSMariner blog. During the 2007 season, dave wrote an open letter to then-Mariners pitching coach Rafael Chaves about Felix Hernandez's ridiculously predictable pitch selection early in games. This led to a concerted effort by Chaves and Hernandez to mix pitches, and both men gave interviews to the local media saying that they realized that if an average fan who writes on the internet can figure out what Felix was about to throw, the hitter probably could, too. It was a pretty damn cool instance of a blogger actually effecting the way baseball was played.
You can find the letter here:
This letter got Dave nominated for a $10,000 college blogging scholarship based on an internet vote.
If John doesn't want promotion-type fanposts on the site, I understand and will take it down, but several SBNation sites have already put up posts mobilizing support for Cameron, and I wanted minorleagueball to get in on the action.
So, follow This link and vote for Dave!
