05/02/06 vs. Washington: Vote for Jose!!

Terrible loss today. Anyways, first off I want to give a big cheer to my brother Javier, who was a real pinch-hit hero today for the Reds. I watched his game today from the clubhouse hot tub. I call him a lot and leave pinch hitting tips on his voice mail. It's turning out to be a great year for Valentins!

Fans I have noticed how many of you visit my site, and I appreciate your support. And ladies, of course, thanks for the pictures, but please don't send them to my home because this makes my wife Ilka a little bit cranky.

I am thrilled at the response to my being a Met, but the time has come for me to ask a favor from you.

I was in the hot tub talking to Cliff Floyd (hitting .190 to my .160, yet listed on the All-star ballot) and he ended up loaning me this book, "The Ultimate Secrets of Total Self-Confidence,'' or some shit. Well, there were some pretty inspiring words in that book and it got me thinking about my self-esteem...

Many of you have probably noticed that I was left off the All-Star ballot this year--no space for pinch hitters such as myself. When he brought me my beer, Endy also mentioned there was no space for pinch runners. But there IS a write-in category. I was thinking to myself, "Jose, wouldn't it be great if some of your fans from your blog would write you in on their ballots when they vote democratically like 50 times for the most popular players regardless of performance?" Since I am starting to peak (.273 in my last 10 games), I think the All-Star game would be a perfect stage for the Jose Valentin experience. You know, it turns out that my agent and Omar inserted a clause in my contract that if I make the All-Star team, that Sterling Co. would get me a gift certificate to Ground Round good for dinner for twelve (thanks again, Omar!!) This would certainly help me to feed my family. What do you say, fans? This year, why not "Vote for Jose"?
