NL All-Star voting update: Carpenter vs. Frazier, Holliday vs. Aoki

Today is the final All-Star game voting update for the National League before the starters are announced Sunday and it looks like only two spots are still realistically up for grabs.

Matt Carpenter of the Cardinals has a narrow lead over Todd Frazier of the Reds at third base and Matt Holliday of the Cardinals has a narrow lead over Norichika Aoki of the Giants for the third outfielder spot.

So … who knows.

Here are the position-by-position numbers:
