As of June 23, 2013 I had just heard that Yadi Molina had finally passed Buster Posey in votes for this years All-Star Game. I just hope the votes keep him above Posey. At this time Molina is at 3,596,858 and Posey is at 3,506,402. At this point in the season Molina is having a better year than Posey in hitting and defense. Cardinals outfielder Carlos Beltran holds the lead at this time for starting outfielder for the All-Star Game. Another surprise is Matt Carpenter. He is still very much in the mix at second base with 2,251,248 votes. Carpenter, who is tied for an NL-best 29 multi-hit games, needs help to catch the Reds’ Brandon Phillips (2,597,742) and the Giants’ Marco Scutaro (2,272,484). So us Cardinals fans need to keep voting to get Carpenter in as our starting second baseman for the All-Star Game. Voting results will be announced on July 6.
