A.L. All-Star balloting update: Teixeira and Gonzalez are neck and neck

22 Comments

Major League Baseball has announced the latest in the A.L. All-Star balloting and the most interesting voting race is at first base, where  Mark Teixeira and Adrian Gonzalez are neck and neck. Teixeira has 1,333,445 votes. Gonzalez has 1,268,706.

Otherwise it’s all the same as it was last week, with Yankees holding just about every position. Josh Hamilton has an outfield slot. David Ortiz is the leader at DH.

And someone please tell me why Joe Mauer is in second place at catcher. Dude has played, what, nine games?
