Joey Votto Leading All-Star Voting

Lets make sure we keep him in the lead.
Rob here. Votto one of five players who could take the last spot on the NL all-star team.
So far, fans have cast 10 million votes. Votto is widely considered the biggest snub when the All-Stars were announced on Sunday.
Many argue Votto has the numbers to to merit inclusion on the NL squad. Reds manager Dusty Baker said on Sunday, "I urge everyone to go on the Internet and vote for Joey."

According to MLB.com, Votto came into Monday's games fifth in the league with a .312 average, tied for second with 19 home runs and tired for 5Th with 57 RBIs. (We should also mention Votto got two home runs in last night's win against the Mets.)
Since 1952, there hasn't been an NL player to rank in the top 5 in the Triple Crown categories and not make the All-Star team.

You have until 4 p.m. ET on Thursday to vote. You can do so at our website and here's a link. http://www.fox19.com/Global/story.asp?S=12756698

I should also mention, Votto was kind enough to sign a jersey for Sheila when we celebrated 10 years working together.
