Rickie Weeks now leads NL second basemen in All-Star balloting

7 Comments

The last update in National League All-Star voting before the final results are announced on Sunday just hit the wires. Here’s where it stands:

C: Brian McCann
1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Rickie Weeks
3B: Placido Polanco
SS: Troy Tulowitzki
OF: Ryan Braun
OF: Lance Berkman
OF: Matt Holliday

Of note is the fact that Weeks has passed Brandon Phillips for the first time and leads him by fewer than 80,000 votes. Prince Fielder is second in first base voting, moving ahead of Joey Votto and thus likely to start given Pujols’ unavailability. Jose Reyes continues to get boned at shortstop. Stupid Mountain Time Zone bias.

If form holds — and if the MLB PR people don’t bust a gut laughing as they try to put together a response to Frank McCourt’s bankruptcy filing — we’ll get the penultimate AL voting results tomorrow.
