MLB put out this release earlier today. It doesn’t sound good for The Big G:

NEW YORK — The Monster 2008 All-Star Game Final Vote on is down to its final seven hours before today’s 5 p.m. (EDT) deadline with the record-setting fan voting increasing to nearly one million votes cast every hour.

In the American League, a heated race for the top spot between Tampa Bay Rays rookie third baseman Evan Longoria and Jermaine Dye of the Chicago White Sox will go down to the deadline. Jason Giambi of the New York Yankees, Brian Roberts of the Baltimore Orioles and Jose Guillen of the Kansas City Royals continue to draw impressive fan support in their campaigns for the final spot on the A.L. All-Star Team.

On the National League ballot, Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Corey Hart and David Wright of the New York Mets are locked in a tightly-contested competition as they enter the final hours of balloting. Philadelphia’s Pat Burrell remained in third place while Aaron Rowand of the San Francisco Giants and Carlos Lee of the Houston Astros follow in fourth and fifth place, respectively.

Fans can also cast their votes via their mobile phones by texting the word “Vote” to 36197 to receive the Monster All-Star Game Final Vote candidates. In Canada, fans should text the word “Vote” to 88555.
