Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko has moved into second place among American League first baseman in voting for the upcoming MLB All Star Game. On Monday, the league released the newest round of voting results for next month's big game, which features three different White Sox players.
Other than Konerko, catcher A.J. Pierzynski and designated hitter Adam Dunn also appeared among the top five vote-getters at their respective positions. Here are the current voting results for those three positions, via MLB.com:
At this point, it's essentially impossible to imagine that Dunn or Pierzynski will be able to land the necessary votes to start in the game, but Konerko has a reasonable shot if he can maintain the stunning numbers he's put up so far. Fielder certainly has more of that "star appeal" but fans are clearly noticing what Paulie has accomplished this year.
