1. Yadier Molina (Cardinals) 494,517

2. Carlos Ruiz (Phillies) 416,585

3. Ivan Rodriguez (Nationals) 403,874

Mets Candidate: Rod Barajas

It is absurd that Barajas is not even in the top 5 in the voting for catchers. Barajas is batting .268 (9th among NL catchers) with a .544 slugging percentage (2nd), 11 home runs (1st), 30 RBIs (1st), and 22 runs scored (4th). Clearly Rod has done more than enough to be near the top of the voting. The leader, Yadier Molina, has a .259 (12th) batting average, a .343 slugging percentage (15th),  two home runs (t-11th), and 28 RBIs (2nd). Barajas is outperforming Molina in every single one of these categories. As of now, Barajas is on pace for a career year, and he is more than deserving of an All-Star Game appearance.


1st Base

1. Albert Pujols (Cardinals) 1,006,149

2. Ryan Howard (Phillies) 532,729

3. Prince Fielder (Brewers) 315,936

Mets Candidate: Ike Davis

While Ike is putting together a nice season so far, there is no way that he could compete with for an All-Star spot at 1st base. Albert Pujols, even with his struggles, has been dominant this year. He is batting .318 with 12 home runs, 39 RBIs, and a .566 slugging percentage. Ike Davis may not reach the All-Star Game for many years because of all the talent that the National League has at first base.


2nd Base

1. Chase Utley (Phillies) 1,103,430

2. Rickie Weeks (Brewers) 261,591

3. Martin Prado (Braves) 260,349
