Miguel Cabrera Takes Back All-Star Voting Lead
Detroit Tigers First Baseman Miguel Cabrera has reclaimed the lead in voting for the 2015 All-Star Game. Two weeks ago, it looked as if the game's greatest hitter might be left out of the All-Star Game altogether, thanks largely in part to an influx of ballot stuffing by Kansas City Royals fans. The new fan voting system has been under wide criticism as Royals players dominate the voting, prompting Major League Baseball to disqualify more than 60 million votes. Royals players still have the lead in a majority of positions, none with more farce than Omar Infante's lead over Houston's Jose Altuve at second base. (Though, Jose Iglesias has a pretty good reason to cry foul at shortstop.)
