Stephen Drew, D-backs: 639,204

OUTFIELD

Ryan Braun, Brewers: 2,230,505

Lance Berkman, Cardinals: 1,878,314

Matt Holliday, Cardinals: 1,855,416

Andre Ethier, Dodgers: 1,468,537

Matt Kemp, Dodgers: 1,372,804

Jay Bruce, Reds: 1,201,224

Shane Victorino, Phillies: 1,001,749

Jason Heyward, Braves: 883,068

Carlos Beltran, Mets: 875,339

Justin Upton, D-backs: 719,937

Raul Ibanez, Phillies: 712,577

Martin Prado, Braves: 676,791

Carlos Gonzalez, Rockies: 674,282

Corey Hart, Brewers: 652,737

Alfonso Soriano, Cubs: 649,093

What isn't shown is the increase or decrease of votes for players. Buster Posey's fans have essentially given up, sliding him to 3rd behind Yadier and Brian. Surprisingly to me, Jason Heyward has descended. In the last update, Heyward was 6th among all outfielders, and Martin Prado was last on the list of outfielders. This time, Martin has ascended above Carlos Gonzalez and Corey Hart.

As for pitching, I'm sure the Braves are making a case with Jair Jurrjens and Jonny Venters. Jonny has had a magnum year with the Braves in a 0.42 ERA, best among all relievers in baseball. We know Jurrjens has had a magnum year, leading starters in ERA with a solid 1.82 ERA, although he has scuffled somewhat in his last few starts. Two starts ago, his ERA was 1.51. But I'm sure Jair "The Dance Surgeon" Jurrjens will be the starting pitcher for the NL. It came to me in a dream.

Lastly, I'll leave you with this. I hope you like it, as I won't be doing much on Talking Chop in the next week.
