6/13 Vote for Byrd

Have you cast your All-Star ballot yet? If not, make sure you vote for Marlon Byrd. The Cubs center fielder is batting .336, and entered Sunday’s game riding a nine-game hitting streak. He has multiple hits in seven of those games and seven RBIs. On Sunday, Byrd was batting third.

“Marlon has been swinging it really well,” Lou Piniella said. “He had one little dry spell for a week or so — the road trip to Philly and Texas — and and outside of that, he’s been a model of consistency. He’s been our best hitter.”

In-stadium balloting ends Wednesday, but you can vote on-line at Cubs.com, and you can do so up to 25 times.
