Fan voting open for 2013 MLS All-Star Game, Marcelo Sarvas snubbed

USA TODAY Sports

The fan vote portion of the balloting for the 2013 MLS All-Star Game is open. Vote for your All-Star Fan XI today (n.b., Marcelo Sarvas not applicable).

The fan ballot for the 2013 MLS All-Star Game is open and you can vote for you All-Star Fan XI today in one of several different ways. The "traditional" options are still available: texting, Twitter and online voting. But this year's fan voting gets even more interactive than before by tying in the FIFA Soccer 13 Ultimate Team.

In addition to the 10 players selected to the All-Star Fan XI by having the most votes from the text, Twitter and online votes, a forward will be selected using the Ultimate Team using the AT&T MLS All-Star "In the Game" Challenge. Whichever forward is used to score the most goals with in the Ultimate Team mode will be selected to the All-Star Game. The one hitch is that the forward has to be among the voting pool selected by media members.

For the Galaxy, the following six players have been nominated for All-Star voting:

G-Carlo Cudicini
D-Todd Dunivant
D-Omar Gonzalez
M-Juninho
F-Landon Donovan
F-Robbie Keane

Where is Marcelo Sarvas you might ask? Who the heck knows. As we pointed out yesterday, Cudicini has no business being on any potential All-Star list given his poor performance this season. As for Juninho, we wonder if the writers got him confused with that other Juninho playing for the New York Red Bulls who is averaging 0.37 assists per 90 minutes. The Galaxy's Juninho has one assist while Sarvas is tied with Keane for the team lead with four helpers. Sarvas also leads the team in tackles (4.7 per 90 minutes) and fouls suffered (nearly 2.5 per 90 minutes) by a large margin, 33-15, over A.J. DeLaGarza.

Head over to MLS Soccer.com for more information on voting and to do your part in voting for the Fan XI to take on Serie A's AS Roma on July 31 at Sporting Park in Kansas City.
