Mets Dominate Standings, and Voting [David Stefanini]

The Senior Circuit ballot, which hold the first votes for the All-Stars, have returned back and the results are one-sided.

Of the 8 positions on the NL All-Star team, if the game was held right now, half of the team would be New York Mets. Don't forget, those are just the starters. Those players would be:

CF - Carlos Beltran (leading vote getter for the NL)

SS - Jose Reyes

3B - David Wright

C - Paul Lo Duca

This year can be something very special for the New York Mets. As Mark English has pointed out earlier, we can not forget that Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez is going to be the ace of the team in the second half of the season. Reports so far have been all very positive about Pedro. Many scouts are saying he is looking like the Pedro of old and is healthier than he has been in the recent past.

They are a team full of All-Stars, but unlike the Yankees, they have a cohesiveness about them. They seem to be having fun in the dugout, smiling, and laughing all the time. It's very early in the season, but I have a very good feeling about seeing them playing in October.
