Could a donkey cost Corey Seager an All-Star Game starting spot?

Thanks to a media ploy on the part of Red first baseman Joey Votto, Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager has lost his spot as the NL's top All-Star vote-getter at his position.

Speculation swirled when it was revealed this week that Red shortstop Zack Cozart had passed Seager in the All-Star voting results by nearly 200,000 votes. Now, we appear to know the source of this surge.

Votto has made a public pledge to buy Cozart a donkey if he makes the National League All-Star team. 

Yes, you heard that correctly. And as you can imagine, the challenge went viral.
