Gaby Sanchez to the All Star Game

Logan Morrison, the Marlins’ undisputed Sultant of Tweet, was on his way to the batting cages at Nationals Park this morning when he called out to two reporters:

“I’m starting a new twitter campaign today — get Gaby Sanchez to the All Star game,” he said.

If @LoMoMarlins has any tweeting pull — and anyone who follows him on Twitter knows that he does — @GabySanchez15 will have a good shot at making the All Star team.

Sanchez’s numbers certainly warrant it.

He went into today second among National League first basemen in batting average (.340), on-base percentage (.420), slugging percentage (.553) and OPS (.973), trailing only Joey Votto in all four categories.

Sanchez is third among NL first basemen in doubles (9), while he leads all NL first basemen in hits (48) and total bases (78). He is tied for second in go-ahead RBI (6).

Told about LoMo’s campaign, Sanchez gave an awkward smile.

“I’m going to have to talk to him and tell him to don’t worry about me,” he said.

“It’s very nice thing for him to try to do but we’re more worried about getting to the playoffs than about getting me to the all star game.”…
