Lincecum for Cy Young: Ballot Stuffing

I have a crazy idea but don't the time to deal with it, so I thought I would post this here in case anyone is as crazy (or more so) than I am.

I don't know who are the two NL beat writers who get to vote from each NL city for the Cy Young award, but what if someone puts together a nice Tim LIncecum stats package, find and post the beat writers e-mail addresses, and a number of interested Giants fans reading this would e-mail this stats package to each voter, perhaps we can influence the vote.

The genesis of this scheme is the common refrain I've heard over and over again about Lincecum's chances:  he should win BUT the voters might not even be familiar with Lincecum's achievements, particularly the East Coast writers, other than that stats that show up in newspapers, wins, strikeouts.  By a number of us sending such information, hopefully one gets through to the writer and he's informed.

Don't know if this would work, but it would sure be a heck of a story for the Internet age.

I would nominate Sharkrog to write up the standard boiler plate letter except that he might be too busy too.
