All-Star voting update: Still too many Phillies, not enough Morneau

2010 All-Star Game.JPGI know the All-Star Game approaches the irrelevant and that early vote totals are even less relevant than the game, but I just can’t help myself.  The leaders so far:

American League

C:  Joe Mauer
1B: Mark Teixeira
2B: Robinson Cano
3B: Evan Longoria
SS: Derek Jeter
OF: Ichiro, Nelson Cruz, Carl Crawford
DH: Vlad Guerrero

Comments: unchanged since last week. Justin Morneau continues to get no love.

National League

C: Yadier Molina
1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Chase Utley
3B: Placido Polanco
SS: Jimmy Rollins
OF: Ryan Braun, Jayson Werth, Andre Ethier

Comments: The only change from last week is that Shane Victorino is no longer in the top three outfielders, having been passed up by Andre Ethier.  I hope the NL can survive with only four starters from the Phillies.  Well, five, assuming Charlie Manuel gives Halladay the nod over Ubaldo Jimenez.

Remember folks: treat this like a Chicago election: vote early, vote often!
