Bryce fucking Harper overtook Justin Upton in the last week of voting. Guy missed 31 games of the first half and people still voted him to start. You’ve got to be kidding me.

Anyway. I got nothing. I mourn the temporary loss of the zombie story, but I will save it until the next round of bribery is needed. The only thing I offered that’s still on the table is that final vote bribe. "If a Brave is in the final vote like last year, I reserve the right to bribe you with something else that you didn’t know you wanted."

Freddie Freeman is up. The thing is, he’s up against another popular rookie. This kid has been in the big leagues for ONE MONTH. Asshole can’t win that vote. Vote Freddie, baby. And the Braves made an alliance with the Toronto Blue Jays, so vote for the Canadian too, as much as I hate to say that. VOTE FREEMAN AND DELABAR. The reward?

I’ll give you the first few paragraphs of your reward:

Zane was on his way up the stairs when the doorbell rang. He debated not answering it before he headed back down, grumbling. It was Sunday, his only day off, and he didn’t want to deal with any shit today.

He peered through the peephole and his heart stuttered when he saw the Marine on the stoop. He was wearing a uniform, hat on his head. A seabag was slung over his shoulder, and he stood straight and tall as he looked out on the street, his back to the door.

I’ll give you the rest of that scene if Freeman makes the All Star game.

Here’s another thing. The second portion of my bribery terms was that if Justin Upton passed Buster Posey for the most votes in the league, I’d write a Nick and Kelly scene. Here’s my dilemma. Upton didn’t pass him, but other people sure as fuck did! Including catcher Yadier Molina, who passed Posey to get the start. So here’s the question. Should I squint at the terms I offered and consider that tiny bit of revenge a win? Go ahead and write the Nick/Kelly scene I would have given you?

I like revenge …
