Attention Shark Fans

We know that Roger Bernadina is capable of some amazing catches and some clutch hits.  And we all expect many more to come.  Since yesterday's game has inspired a whole new breed of Shark faithful, Sharkadina is going to try to ride this wave of interest to the max.  Never fear, I am not asking for money.  All I'm asking is for a little bit of time (which I suppose is money, if you believe in the 'time is money' cliche).

1. Roger Bernadina's ridiculous catch is nominated for the early Web Gem of the Year.  It is up against a slick, but not electrto-sharking play by Yuniesky Betancourt. The task is simple!  Go to ESPN's MLB website, scroll down (on the left side), then vote for Bernadina's catch.  This is what you are looking for:

It is so simple. At last check, they were each at 50% with 1,147 votes cast. You don't need to enter an e-mail address or anything.  Just go here and vote Shark!

2. All Star Shark! I know that it is early and Bernadina has only played in 8 games this year, but let's get the Shark to the All Star Game.  Here is a link to the 2011 All Star Ballot.  When you scroll to the bottom, you will see a section for a write-in vote.  Fill it out accordingly...

You can fill out the rest of the ballot as you will.  Or you don't have to fill anything else out (If you are not a baseball fan, a rule of thumb is vote for the Nationals players on the NL side (and the Tigers on the AL side)). You will have to register to vote (with your email) but then you are can vote up to 25 times, without having to select everyone again (MLB has actually made it easier).
Make sure you uncheck the "I would like to receive commercial e-mails..." box
It is really a win-win situation.  Even if he doesn't get selected, MLB will have to acknowledge the nickname with votes for "Roger the Shark Bernadina." (They already do for Phillies players, "The Flyin' Hawaiian" Shane Victorino, and "Doc" Roy Halladay...not fair)  I, for one, would love to see it say "the Shark" on the early voting results...  So if you don't mind one e-mail saying "Thank You for Voting," let's get the Shark to the All Star Game.

I am already working on the marine life vote.  They are having problems with typing his name, but we are working on it.

More to come.
