Second baseman Chase Utley is the leading vote-getter in the National League overall. Shortstop Jimmy Rollins, outfielders Shane Victorino and Jayson Werth, and in somewhat of a surprise, third baseman Placido Polanco, would start in Anaheim if the voting ended today. Two others are close behind: first baseman Ryan Howard and catcher Carlos Ruiz are each running second. Raul Ibanez has the eighth-highest vote total among outfielders, with Ryan Braun earning the most votes at the position. Beerleaguer: Utley and Werth are deserving, but Polanco and Victorino are a stretch. Rollins is forever an All-Star in my mind, but he's barely played in reality. There've been a number of breakout seasons by third basemen in the National League, including Casey McGehee and David Freese, so Polanco is tough to justify. Andre Ethier, who's on the DL with a fractured pinkie, is a Triple Crown candidate and should start over Vic, along with about eight others. Kosuke Fukudome is having a nice season in particular. I'd love to see Carlos Ruiz get there, and I think Charlie Manuel would take him.
