2012 MLB All-Star Game: Rangers Doing Well In Voting Polls

The Texas Rangers really don't have any weaknesses. They've got Gold Glove candidates at nearly every position, and every got in their batting rotation can be dangerous on a given night.

It really is compelling, and has to be somewhat deflating for teams in the American League that know getting to the World Series is going to have to go through Texas in some fashion.

So next month's MLB All-Star Game is likely to reflect how much talent the Rangers organization has been able to collect over recent years. Check out the voting numbers after the jump.
