2011 MLB All Star Voting: Placido Polanco Extends Lead At Third

Major League Baseball released the second round of voting results for the 2011 MLB All Star Game and Placido Polanco remains the lone Phillie leading his position. Polly has extended his lead over Chipper Jones by 247,209 votes or 43%. While he's the only guy on the team leading his position, a Phillies is among the top five in voting for every position other than the outfield.

Chase Utley remains third in the voting among second baseman, which is kind of crazy considering he's been back less than a month. He has last ground from the initial voting however, with Rickie Weeks lead for second growing by almost 25,000 votes. Both are well behind the leader Brandon Phillips however.

Polanco certainly won't be the Phils only representative at the midsummer classic. They're certain to get a pitcher or two or three as well... but that will depend on who would be available to be pitch.
