All-Star Ballots: Utley Leads Everyone, Others Lagging

Chase Utley continues to outpace everyone in National League All-Star voting.

Utley has 1,284,961 votes, more than 600,000 above Dan Uggla and the most of any player in baseball. His teammates, however, are suffering.

Pat Burrell has been pushed back to ninth place, with Ryan Braun, Matt Holliday and Hunter Pence leapfrogging him. Jimmy Rollins remains parked behind four shortstops, some 250,000 votes shy of first place. And Ryan Howard is mired in fourth place among first basemen with less than 400,000 votes (Utley received more votes last week than Howard overall).

Current leaders have changed slightly, with Miguel Tejada taking over for Hanley Ramirez. Thanks, Astros fans, for removing the best shortstop in baseball from his perch.

The team stands as: Geovany Soto/Lance Berkman/Chase Utley/Chipper Jones/Miguel Tejada/Alfonso Soriano/Kosuke Fukudome/Ken Griffey Jr.
