>My Updated All Star Ballot

>

Voting for the 2011 MLB All-Star Game Starters ends tomorrow night at 11:59 pm EST. {Vote Here}

They will announce the starters and reserves on July 3rd.

On April 26th, I filled out my first All-Star ballot online. Two months can make a big difference especially for the Boston Redsox, who started their season 2-10.

I have a total of five changes for the American League starting lineup. With the Redsox having one of the best records in the MLB, they deserve a couple of starters in the Summer Classic. 
C: Russell Martin to Alex Avila
1B: Miguel Cabrera to Adrian Gonzalez
OF: Jeff Francour to Jacoby Ellsbury
OF: Carlos Quentin to Curtis Granderson
DH: Travis Hafner to David Ortiz
For the National League starting lineup I also made five changes. Buster Posey went down with an injury and now is out for the season but at the same time Brian McCann has been hitting a lot better. It’s great seeing Jose Reyes having another outstanding season. 
C: Buster Posey (Injury) to Brian McCann
1B: Joey Votto to Prince Fielder
SS: Troy Tulowitzki to Jose Reyes
3B: Pablo Sandoval to Placido Polanco
OF: Andre Ethier to Lance Berkman

American League:
C – Russell Martin (NYY)
1B – Miguel Cabrera (DET)
