NEW YORK (AP) - The Yankees' Derek Jeter overtook Boston's Nomar Garciaparra in voting for the starting American League shortstop in next month's All-Star game.
 

Jeter, who slumped for much of the first two months of the season, has 488,815 votes to 479,814 for Garciaparra in totals released Tuesday by the commissioner's office.
Garciaparra, who has been on the disabled list since the start of the season, is on a rehabilitation assignment at Triple-A Pawtucket and could be activated soon.

There were no other changes in position leaders. Two other Yankees are on track to start in the July 13 game at Houston: third baseman Alex Rodriguez (699,691) and first baseman Jason Giambi (459,475).

Second baseman Alfonso Soriano, traded from New York to Texas in February, leads all major leaguers with 896,631 votes.

Detroit's Ivan Rodriguez (635,248) leads at catcher, and the top three outfielders are Anaheim's Vladimir Guerrero (791,605), and Boston's Manny Ramirez (760,310) and Johnny Damon (420,939). The Yankees' Gary Sheffield is just behind in fourth at 419,289.

Voting runs through June 23 at most ballparks and June 30 on the Internet, and starters will be announced July 4.

Updated NL totals were released Monday.

I was very dissapointed to see Nomar in first for a while, when Michael Young is clearly the best Shortstop in the game right now, and maybe one of the best players in baseball at this point in the season ,i am not happy to see jeter in first either, but what can you do?

Jeter isn't having an All-Star year so far, but at least he's PLAYED!

What knowledgeable baseball fan would vote for a player who hasnt stepped a foot on the field the entire season?

But you cant take the voting away from the fans, that's what it's all about. You just gotta hope the sensible outnumber the morons, if you will.
