Raul Ibanez leads all outfielders and Jimmy Rollins all shortstops in National League All-Star voting. They join Chase Utley, who leads all second basemen. Utley closed in on Albert Pujols for the overall lead, as our second baseman leads Orlando Hudson by more than 1,000,000 votes.
Meanwhile, it gets interesting:
- First Base: Ryan Howard is now 900,000 votes or so behind Pujols, now in second place in first base voting.
- Third Base: Pedro Feliz is fourth among third sackers, behind David Wright, Ryan Zimmerman and Chipper Jones.
- Outfield: While Ibanez is well in front, Shane Victorino is in sixth (about 200,000 shy of third place), and Jayson Werth is in eighth.
- Catcher: And Carlos Ruiz has entered the top five, less than 300,000 behind leader Yadier Molina.
Chances are the Phils will slip a tad with the next round, as it’ll reflect the current Phils’ road trip. But keep voting by clicking here.
