The Milwaukee Brewers just can't take it anymore.

After five consecutive years of watching St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina win a spot on the National League All-Star roster, Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is fighting back in a mudslinging video worthy of a political campaign:

"Do you want another St. Louis Cardinals catcher to star in an All-Star game? Isn't there a better way?" the ad says while the sound of a baby crying plays over footage of Molina. "Cast a ballot for change. Cardinals fans need to know that enough is enough."

The spot is actually pretty hilarious, especially because Molina's strong and early lead in this year's All-Star voting is leaving Cardinals fans pretty confident their favorite catcher will maintain his hegemony.

As of Sunday, Molina earned the second-most votes in the entire National League, leading San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey with just over 2 million votes. Lucroy ranks third with more than 1.1 million votes.

But with the game only a month away, Lucroy isn't going down without a fight. Not only does he make a quickie cameo in his All-Star ad shaking his head at the Cardinals, he also adds his support in true political fashion: "I'm Jonathan Lucroy, and I approve this message."

So good for you, Lucroy. Cute video. And now, if you'll excuse us, we're going to go vote for Molina for 2014 National League All-Star catcher.
