Fans have finally come to their senses. I don’t know whether it’s Yankees fans getting angry with Mark Teixeira, or if it’s the rest of the country realizing just how good a season Justin Morneau is having. Either way, fans have righted a wrong.
Morneau has taken over the lead at first base for the 2010 All-Star Game.
Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano still lead at their respective positions, while Alex Rodriguez and Jorge Posada are in second trailing by wide margins. Here’s a full All-Star ballot update:
