The first returns are in on the All-Star game voting, and three of our Commonwealth stars are on the board. Mets 3B David Wright (Chesapeake) is third in the voting, about 40K votes behind the leader. Definitely not an insurmountable deficit.
The situation with the OF is a little different. Braves OF Justin Upton and Rockies OF Michael Cuddyer, both Chesapeake natives, are in the Top 15 in the voting, but low. Upton is 7th, about 134K votes behind a starting spot, and Cuddyer is 14th, about 250K votes behind a starting spot. It will be interesting to see if Cuddyer can make up some significant ground, especially with 3 of his teammates now leading the voting at their positions.
