The Cardinals want you to Vote for Freese, please!

David Freese is not lacking support for his Final Vote campaign.

The St. Louis Cardinals have kicked off their drive to get the 2011 World Series MVP voted into the Mid-Summer Classic on July 10 in Kansas City.

The club's Twitter and Facebook pages feature a campaign-style button bearing Freese's likeness, and the #FreesePlease hashtag has been promoted widely.

Freese's response to the commotion was typical for the soft-spoken third baseman: "We'll let it ride out and see what happens."

When asked if he plans to use Twiter to campaign for himself, Freese chuckled and responded, "I'm not going to do that."

While Freese may not be into self-promotion, his teammates are happy to oblige, including pitcher Joe Kelly.

Silliness aside, Freese said playing in the All-Star Game would carry special meaning for him.

"For me, it's not about just the All-Star Game. It's about playing for Tony La Russa one more time."
