All-Star voting update: Puig, McCutchen, and Stanton are 1-2-3- in the NL outfield

Jun 16, 2014, 8:55 AM EDT

The National League All-Star outfield is looking pretty strong at the moment. The three guys on pace to start per the latest vote happen to be the three best-hitting outfielders in the league at the moment. Put Carlos Gomez on the team too — he’s fourth in balloting — and it’s looking like one of the more solid outfields you’ll ever see.

Beyond them? Goldschmidt, Utley, Wright, Tulowitzki and Molina lead their respective positions. While one may quibble with any of those choices on the merits of their half-season stats — Jonthan Lucroy and Todd Frazier fans are weeping at the moment — there is no question that NL voters know who the stars in the senior circuit truly are.

The results as of today:

    I can’t believe that my team’s player has fewer votes than a different team’s player.

    The fans are so stupid.

      Evan Gattis at 4th!? Truly ridiculous…

      • thatsnuckinfuts - Jun 16, 2014 at 11:48 AM

        Lucroy 3rd is more so, he should be 1st…..easily in 1st.

      ZOOOOOOOOOOM right over his head!

    I can’t believe Cutch is ahead of Gomez.

    • stex52 - Jun 16, 2014 at 10:26 AM

      I’d call that very close. They are both having good years. Cutch has decided to light it up lately.

    Clearly the Gaints like to fill out a lot of ballots, they have a good team but some of there guys are way to high…

    • stex52 - Jun 16, 2014 at 10:27 AM

      Yup. Giants fans are stuffing the boxes.

    It should be Stanton, Puig, McCutcheon (or Gomez…….both worthy). Boy, third base is weak this season. Yeah….Frazier needs to be in that group! Without the injury, I think Arenado would have been the class of the position.

    No ones gonna mention Molina and Posey over Lucroy? Not only is Lucroy blowing their stats out of the water, but he’s also a good defender and rates as one of the better pitch framers. He might be the best catcher in baseball right now.

    Lucroy: .336/.397/.516, .399 wOBA
    Molina: .283/.331/399, .318 wOBA
    Posey: .271/.331/.421, .324 wOBA

    • stex52 - Jun 16, 2014 at 11:59 AM

      Molina is not a bad choice. He also has the great defense. But you are right. On this year to date, Lucroy looks better.

    Remember 30 years ago when people actually cared about the ASG, and which side won? Interleague play has killed it.

    • jwbiii - Jun 16, 2014 at 11:54 AM

      That and expanded playoffs, cable TV, and internet availability. If you lived in a one team market, you would rarely see the stars of the other league.

      • stercuilus65 - Jun 16, 2014 at 8:17 PM

        Actually 30 years ago you saw MORE baseball from around the league. You had multiple networks showing games (USA network, TBS, etc…) and national games weren’t just Boston and NY.
        Televised baseball today id far more regionailized.

    • paperlions - Jun 16, 2014 at 1:52 PM

      I remember 30 years ago, and no one gave a crap about the ASG back then either.

      • grumpyoleman - Jun 16, 2014 at 3:09 PM

        Ratings don’t show that to be true.

  8. zackd2 - Jun 16, 2014 at 1:37 PM

    That NY player leading votes at his position is such a joke. Derek Jeter? Nope, try David Wright. .262/.326/.355 for a 3B, wow.

    Yet Jeter gets made fun of for getting votes and this guy gets a pass.
