Today is the last day for voting in the 2014 MLB All-Star Game Final Vote where fans have the chance to send the last player to the All-Star Game. And although I’m a Red Sox fan, I’m voting for Rick Porcello of the Detroit Tigers because he’s a hardcore fly fisherman, an Orvis fan, and loves to fish around his family’s home in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Porcello was featured a couple years back in The Drake, and public knowledge of his love for fly fishing is beginning to grow.

You can either cast your vote on the MLB website or tweet your vote from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today, using the #pickrick hashtag. So let’s all cast votes for Rick and then

  1. Nice little browns! But this statement is wrong. “Rick Porcello shows off a fall landlocked salmon from a western Massachusetts tributary.” it’s a brown trout! Who is running this site??

    1. ok nevermind, I’m west cost never saw or heard of land locked Atlantic Salmon! you should of just said that! what a difference those salmon are compared to our land locks, which look the same as the ocean versions!

  2. They can look just like atlantics or like browns depending on the river; you need to check out the fins, tail and mouth to make a more certain determination; it is tough to do with that picture but if the harrisons say it was a landlocked salmon; it was a land locked salmon.
