Cubs Dominating in All-Star Game Voting

The Chicago Cubs have the best record in baseball through 50 games, and the team's fans want to see their favorite club well-represented at this year's All-Star Game. 

Major League Baseball unveiled the latest voting results for the Midsummer Classic on Wednesday afternoon, and the Cubs are absolutely dominating the field for the National League squad. 

The infield, if the game were held today, would be comprised of nothing but Cubs, as they hold the voting lead at all four positions. Anthony Rizzo has a commanding lead among first baseman, with nearly 875,000 votes cast for him as he leads the league in that category. 

San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt is second at that position, trailing Rizzo by over 600,000 votes. 

At second base, Ben Zobrist is also running away with the voting, with his 733,000 votes putting him well ahead of Washington's Daniel Murphy, who has over 488,000 votes. 

Kris Bryant would get the start at third base, as he's currently over 175,000 votes ahead of Colorado's Nolan Arenado. Shortstop Addison Russell is also leading the pack at that position, although he holds a slim 10,000 vote lead over Colorado's Trevor Story. 

St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina leads among National League backstops, with Chicago's Miguel Montero currently ranked third with 286,000 votes to his credit. 

The Cubs have three outfielders in the top six in voting in that category, but currently only have one starter, as Dexter Fowler is currently in second place. He is just 40,000 votes behind Washington's Bryce Harper, and just 5,000 votes ahead of New York's Yoenis Cespedes. 

Jason Heyward finished just outside of the top three in voting, as he sits in fourth place with 477,000 votes. Jorge Soler is in sixth place, with 313,000 votes. 

This year's All-Star Game will take place on July 12, as the National and American Leagues square off at Petco Park in San Diego.
