All Star Voting Update: Sandoval Leads Wright

2013 all star game logo citi fieldAs the first round of voting is tallied for the 2013 All Star Game at Citi Field, no Met is currently leading the vote to be an All-Star Game starter.

It’s a closer battle at third base, where Pablo Sandoval leads David Wright, 1,094,475 votes to 967,299. Sandoval toppled Wright last year as you may remember which prompted Mets general manager Sandy Alderson to go on Twitter to voice his displeasure with fans.

John Buck is the only other Met player who appears in the top five for voting at any position, ranking third behind Buster Posey and Yadier Molina. The Giants catcher is again pacing the All Star balloting, receiving over 1.2 million votes so far.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy will select the pitching as is customary, and there’s little doubt that Matt Harvey will be among his selections.

Considering the sparse attendance at Citi Field these days, the Mets’ best chance of getting Wright or any other Mets selected would be through voting online.
