The fan balloting for the All-Star Game closes tonight. In less than an hour actually. I voted twice more (since I could), once somewhat seriously and once for fun. It seems as if most of the early craziness has corrected itself. Derrek Lee is not going to get slighted. Ichiro and Tino Martinez aren't starters as of right now. Cesar Izturis, who's fallen off the map since his great May, has been overtaken by the slow but steady David Eckstein.
"Serious" ballot: AL Justin Morneau, Brian Roberts, Miguel Tejada, Alex Rodriguez, Joe Mauer, David Ortiz, Johny Damon, Manny Ramirez, Mark Kotsay NL Lee, Jeff Kent, Eckstein, Scott Rolen, Paul Lo Duca, Andruw Jones, Cliff Floyd, Miguel Cabrera
"Fun" ballot: AL Paul Konerko, Tadahito Iguchi, Brandon Inge, Bobby Crosby, A.J. Pierzynski, Bobby Kielty, Kevin Mench, Scott Podsednik, Travis Hafner NL Hee Seop Choi, Mark Grudzielanek, Garrett Atkins, Clint Barmes, Jason Phillips, Jason Bay, Carlos Lee, Willy Taveras
