Stanton moves into second place among outfielders in All-Star voting

ARLINGTON, TEX. -- Giancarlo Stanton is still being voted in as a starter for next month's All-Star Game.

In the latest results released by MLB late Monday afternoon, Stanton actually moved up from third place among the outfielders to second. Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig remains the leading vote-getter among outfielders with 142,717.

With 1,259,057 votes, only four other players have more votes than Stanton among players in the National League. Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (2,007,202), Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina (1,621,944), Puig and Phillies second baseman Chase Utley (1,342,480 ).

Stanton remains the only Marlins player among the leaders in voting. For complete results, click here.

Furcal has been on this rehab assignment for so long maybe he can make the Pacific Coast League, Southern League, Florida State League and South Atlantic League All-Star Teams before he plays as a Marlin. Blanking JOKE!!!!!

Dionysus Thelxinoe

Furcal who?

Dionysus Thelxinoe

Ohhhhh, THAT Furcal!!!

Not to worry, Lou. He'll no doubt declare himself to be in perfect health around the time he's seeking a contract for next year.

Lou Vales

DT, IF he can play in the minors, it is not Furcal's fault that club does not demand he ply his trade in Dade County.

What does Furcal have to do with Stanton's All-Star voting? On the Furcal rag today? Take some midol,then douche.

Dionysus Thelxinoe

Lou, last year, it was Placido Polanco, Juan Pierre, Austin Kearns, Matt Diaz, Miguel Olivo, John Maine, and Jon Rauch.

This year it's been Furcal, Carlos Marmol, Randy Wolf, Miguel Tejada, and McGehee, so far. So that's one out of 12.

Lou Vales

Clarkie(LOL), Will you loan me the douche bag you exited?

Dionysus Thelxinoe

Ok, now I'm REALLY confused. What does a hygienic cleansing agent have to do with all star voting?
