2012 All-Star Voting: Melky, Furcal Take Over

The San Francisco Giants haven't had a position player start the All-Star game since Barry Bonds in 2007, but everyone knew that was going to change when they acquired Melky Cabrera.

Wait ...

The current National League All-Star vote totals were released on Tuesday, and Cabrera overtook Ryan Braun for the third outfield slot, currently edging last year's MVP by around 25,000 votes. Braun is currently hitting .314/.391/.612 with a league-leading 19 home runs, so the results are something of a shock.

The other change since the last update is with the shortstops, where Rafael Furcal's hot start helped him vault over Troy Tulowitzki, who is still struggling with a groin injury.
