All-Star Ballots: Utley Leads All NL Players

Chase Utley is the leading All-Star Game vote-getter for the National League with 537,788 votes. That’s more than 100,000 more than the next-highest player, Chipper Jones of the Braves. Utley is third among all Major Leaguers in votes, behind David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez of the Red Sox.

The big story of the voting is how much Cubs players are ruling the ballots. They have a position player in every top-five, with leaders at catcher and outfield (two). Travesty alert: Ryan Theriot is beating Jimmy Rollins at shortstop (same kind of travesty as how Mark DeRosa is beating Dan Uggla … and Kaz Matsui is beating both of them, too). Of course, this might have to do with long homestands for both the Cubs and Astros during the first weeks of voting. Hopefully.

Here are the leaders, with how Phillies are faring:

First Base
1. Lance Berkman (HOU) – 329,473
5. Ryan Howard – 140,683

Second Base
1. Chase Utley – 537,788

Third Base
1. Chipper Jones (ATL) – 420,664

Shortstop
1. Hanley Ramirez (FLA) – 268,386
5. Jimmy Rollins – 156,620

Catcher
1. Geovany Soto (CHC) – 343,427

Outfield
1. Alfonso Soriano (CHC) – 352,267
2. Kosuke Fukudome (CHC) – 325,456
3. Ken Griffey Jr. (CIN) – 300,230
6. Pat Burrell – 220,596
