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

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.

    It’s good to see Polly getting his props.

    Seriously, worst NL all-star batting lineup ever. Hope Bochy does a good job picking pitchers.

      Seems like something he’s used to.

      Bochy’s made it pretty clear he’ll pick plenty of Giants. Unless something changes dramatically in the next couple weeks, that will probably include at least Lincecum, Brian Wilson and the very worthy Ryan Vogelsong. Matt Cain, too.

      Just be thankful as long as he’s not picking any of the remaining non-injured SF position players, who are collectively worth about negative 27 WAR.

    People do realise that Polanco hasn’t showed up since April right?

    I think Reyes is getting the shaft also, but regardless of that fact this is way more representative of the NL than the AL/Yankees team that will be named.

    Looks like my votes are all starting except Reyes. I also have Fielder due to the Pujols injury so I am counting that.
