Giants’ Brandon Belt cracks funny joke about losing Final Vote

Brandon Belt home run

Brandon Belt deflected the disappointment of losing the Final Vote by cracking a joke.

The San Francisco Giants first baseman was among the five finalists for the Final Vote to determine the final spot on the NL All-Star team. He was beaten out by Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar, who won the vote.

Belt then cracked a joke about the election being rigged by the Russians, which was a reference to the 2016 presidential election.

Though Belt is having a good season with his .900 OPS, Aguilar with his 1.000 OPS is even more deserving. The fans seem to have gotten this one right. Max Muncy, Trea Turner and Matt Carpenter were the other Final Vote candidates in the NL.
