Jose Bautista, Robinson Cano Lead AL All-Star Voting

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Jose Bautista played for the Yankees? You might get that chance. The first update of the AL All-Star ballot is out, and Bautista is leading the way, surrounded by pinstripes.

Here's what the team would look like if the balloting ended today, with second place in parentheses:

C - Russell Martin, 843,459 votes (Joe Mauer, 593,949)
1B - Mark Teixeira, 827,247 (Adrian Gonzalez, 685,262)
2B - Robinson Cano, 1,185,952 (Dustin Pedroia, 586,361)
SS - Derek Jeter, 931,410 (Asdrubal Cabrera, 672,105)
3B - Alex Rodriguez, 945,127 (Adrian Beltre, 755,551)
OF - Jose Bautista, 1,261,659 (Ichiro Suzuki, 674,406)
OF - Curtis Granderson, 994,315 (Nelson Cruz, 514,006)
OF - Josh Hamilton, 748,240 (Jacoby Ellsbury, 494,721)

It's about time those Yankees get a chance to shine on the national stage. So, so overlooked. If MLB is trying to make people vote by showing them a glimpse of a six-Yankee starting lineup ... well, it's probably working. I'm going to go vote 25 times right after I finish this.
