Yasiel Puig may have had the support, but in the end he didnt have the votes. The Dodgers rookie lost out to Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman in Final Vote balloting by fans for next weeks All-Star Game in New York. Freeman led online voting the entire way despite a push by the Dogers to send Puig.Muchas gracias de todo corazon. Thank you from bottom my heart. Quiero agradecer a la mejor fanaticada del mundo. Thanks best fans in world! yasielpuig (@YasielPuig) July 11, 2013 A record 79.2 million votes were cast this week, according to MLB.com. Freeman finished with 19.6 million votes. Puig still has a chance to represent the Dodgers on the National League All-Star team, but he would need to be an injury replacement if a player pulls out. In the case, manager Bruce Bochy would have to select him after consulting with Commissioner Bud Selig. Puig, 22, has had a major impact on the Dodgers since he was called up from the minor leagues and began Thursday night hitting .394 with eight home runs and 19 RBIs. The All-Star Game is July 16 and can be seen on FOX.
