2013 All-Star Voting Update

With the voting process for the annual rendition of Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game nearing an end, we can get a pretty good idea on what to expect the rosters to be. So far, according to people’s votes on SportsNation, we have a few surprises. Assuming the results stay the same, the Yankees would only have two all-stars, a phenomenon that has not happened since 1993 when Wade Boggs and Jimmy Key were the only Bombers to be selected. This year, it seems that Mariano Rivera and Robinson Cano are on track to be the only Yankees in this year’s Mid-Summer’s Classic.

For once, the Mets seem to be having as much All-Star success as their New York rival. They too are on track to have two All-Stars to represent the Mets as they play host this year. Both David Wright and Matt Harvey are currently leading the votes at each of their respective positions.

If everything continues as it is so far, here is what should be the starting lineups for this year’s All-Star Game at Citi Field:


C- Joe Mauer MIN

1B- Chris Davis BAL

2B- Robinson Cano NYY

3B- Miguel Cabrera DET

SS- Johnny Peralta DET

OF- Mike Trout LAA

OF- Adam Jones BAL

OF- Jose Bautista TOR

SP- Clay Buchholz BOS

RP- Mariano Rivera NYY



C- Yadier Molina STL

1B- Paul Goldschmidt ARI

2B- Brandon Phillips CIN

3B- David Wright NYM

SS- Troy Tulowitzki COL

OF- Carlos Gonzalez COL

OF- Carlos Beltran STL

OF- Domonic Brown PHI

SP- Matt Harvey NYM

RP- Jason Grilli PIT
