The Atlanta Braves and Toronto Blue Jays have been encouraging their fans to support one another in the 2013 MLB All-Star Game Final Vote, and their plan has worked thus far. As of Wednesday morning, Braves first basemen Freddie Freeman was leading the NL vote and Blue Jays pitcher Steve Delabar was in first in the AL.
Most people expected Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig to generate the most votes on the NL side, but he remains in second place. And rapper Lil Jon, who is from Atlanta, is hoping to help keep it that way.

Several people like this AL manager have said they do not believe Puig deserves an All-Star spot since he has only been in the majors a month, and so far it looks like the fans agree. As long as Braves and Jays fans continue to make good on their partnership and Freeman keeps getting endorsements from rap stars, he has as good a shot as anyone.
