Seager cracks top five in All-Star Game vote at SS

Los Angeles Dodgers vs San Francisco Giants

SSBy Jon Weisman

Corey Seager’s five-homer weekend against Atlanta gave him enough of a voting boost to move into the top five at shortstop for the National League All-Star team.

Seager continues to lead NL shortstops in wins above replacement and has taken over the lead in weighted runs created. He trails Colorado’s Trevor Story by two in home runs and .003 in weighted on-base average.

As was the case a week ago and the week before that, Adrian González appears in the top five in the balloting for first base. (Pitchers aren’t part of the fan vote). The current NL voting for the remaining positions:

All Dodger fans need to vote for Corey…he belongs at the All Star game this year!

The all star game is just a popularity contest. Joc came out of the homerun derby not hitting anymore. I think it would be better if they just went home and chilled with their families.

Pederson’s struggles began a month before the All-Star Game.

It is a popularity contest. It doesn’t have much to do with who really is deserving.
