Results updated: Monday, June 22, 2009
courtesy of MLB.comIt appears that sane fans have finally gone to the voting booths again as Jimmy Rollins is temporarily out of the lead for the Short Stop start.   Hanley Ramirez who is likely the most deserving shortstop on the NL ballot has taken a lead of about 150,000 votes after a week in which a slightly over .200 batter had somehow been leading in that position.   There are no other major updates to be found, and most positions appear to be all but locked up.   The main races left are at short stop and for the last outfield spot between Carlos Beltran and Alfonso Soriano.   I'd be very surprised to see any other 1st place changes for other positions, but you never know with the campaigns some teams will do.As always, Vote Early, Vote Correctly at http://www.mlb.com
