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:

AMERICAN LEAGUE

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

 

NATIONAL LEAGUE

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

      So what are some of your thoughts on the All-Star teams?

      • Yoshi

        Not much to say the Teams were pretty obvious this year Im upset that the competition for 3rd on the NL team was so close David Wright clearly has the better season surprised that Daniel Murphy wasn’t more in the 2nd discussion also it seems people are voting HR hitters Dominic has been having a great year but not All Star good especially when you have guys like Justin Upton and why hasn’t anyone from the Pirates made it????? they better make the bench

        and I don’t really care about the AL no offence but to may underachieving Stars there and good players going unnoticed cause there not stars I mean seriously Peralta as a Starter when you have guys like JJ Hardy having a career season and theres more but i think that proves my point

        • Carson Coudriet

          Yeah I know what you mean about Dominic Brown I was shocked to find out McCutchen wasn’t a starter. And him and more Pirates will probably still make it, and if they don’t have at least one starter by the end of the voting it will be a shame.
          However, I still support Peralta over Hardy I know that Hardy’s having a good year, but Peralta is batting over .300 while Hardy is hitting just .263. Hardy is playing well but I wouldn’t call it a career year just yet

          • Yoshi

            I hear your point about JJ Hardy but I think Jed Lowrie should at least get a mention
