MLB All-Star Voting: Texas Rangers Still Doing Well In Polls

The Texas Rangers are still doing well in the Major League Baseball All-Star voting. As you'll see below, Ian Kinsler leads all American League votes for second basemen with 2.58 million votes. Adrian Beltre leads third base voting in the AL with 2.25 million votes. If it wasn't for the undying loyalty and greatness of Derek Jeter, Elvis Andrus would be leading the votes at shortstop.

Mike Napoli and Josh Hamilton lead the voting for catchers and outfielders, respectively. Take a look here:
