The Final Vote for the final All-Star slot on each team concluded at 4pm eastern today. If you were on Twitter it was impossible to avoid the hashtags. Clearly, it’s the best form of democracy we have to offer. Anyway, the winners are in: Michael Saunders of the Blue Jays and and Brandon Belt of the Giants.

Belt just edged out yesterday’s leader, Starling Marte, who finished second. Then came Trevor Story of the Rockies, Jake Lamb of the Diamondbacks and Ryan Braun of the Brewers who, shockingly, did not win a fan popularity contest. Didn’t see that one coming.

In the AL Saunders beat out George Springer of the Astros, Dustin Pedroia of the Red Sox, Ian Kinsler of the Tigers and Evan Longoria of the Rays.

So there’s your last All-Stars. At least until the next five guys get replaced for injuries and things.
