If you're into sports betting, like I know most of you are, then you'll appreciate the chances that Joe Mauer has of being the starting catcher for the 2009 American League All-Star team... especially since he's nearly 1.5 million votes ahead of the next guy, Boston Red Sox backstop, Jason Varitek.
But what about the close races? Headed into Thursday's polls, New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira was just 40,000 votes ahead of Kevin Youkilis, an avid online poker player and charity soldier for children everywhere.
Josh Hamilton, the bible-thumping, recovering drug addict slugger who almost won the Homer Derby last year, is 140,000 tallies shy of Los Angeles Angels center fielder and all-around swell guy, Torii Hunter. A lot can happen in one day however, and voting on mlb.com doesn't end until midnight tonight!
