Big Papi Trails Cruz For All Star DH
Still no Boston Red Sox players in the MLB starting lineup for the All Star Game next month. In fact, only David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia stand any chance of getting picked by baseball fans.
Voting continues through July 3rd and Ortiz trails Nelson Cruz in the DH spot by about 300,000 votes.
Pedroia is about 350,000 votes behind Robinson Cano and Ian Kinsler for the starting second base spot.
A.J. Pierszynski is fourth in voting for catcher.
Toronto's Jose Bautista leads all players with over 2-million votes.
A reminder who will hear the MLB All Star Game live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket on July 15th from Target Field in Minnesota.
