2011 MLB All-Star Game: Shane Victorino Receives Shaq's Help

Todd Helton is facing even greater odds to become the final member of the 2011 National League All-Star team. Sitting in third place after the announcement of early voting results, Helton trails the Phillies' Shane Victorino and the Dodgers' Andre Ethier.

Victorino now has some big help, as the Denver Post's Troy Renck points out. Shaq, yes, Shaquille O'Neal, is tweeting to his more than 4 million followers:

vote 4 my man shane victorino 2 be in da allstar game pleas thank u http://t.co/5NOGE9Eless than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

 

Ooh, boy, that may give the Flyin' Hawaiian an edge in the voting, if he didn't already have one just being from Philadelphia. Maybe we should get SB Nation's latest adviser, Ashton Kutcher, and his 7 million-plus followers to go for Todd Helton.
