In the latest report on the voting between the two players, the two were going at it for the starting second base position in the 2012 MLB All-Star game.
Not only would it be unjust to have the Texas Rangers' 2B top the Yankees second baseman in the votes for the American League starter spot, it would also be—to use ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith's go-to word—blasphemous. Cano has the clear edge in the production between the two this season, has played much better as of late, and was the significantly better player last year as well.
When it comes to overall numbers, there is no contest between the two top-notch talents. Cano has posted the 10th-best average in the AL at .308 this season, while Kinsler bats just .277.
