Mark Teixeira

Via PeteAbe, Teixeira has taken over first place for 1B in the All-Star voting. He moved past Kevin Youkilis and leads by 1,209 votes at this point. He totally deserves a start in the All-Star game. He had an unbelievable month of May, hitting close to .330/.391/.748 with 13 HR. He was able to bring his dismal March/April BA from .200 up to .286 over May and the first 6 games of this month. He leads the AL with 18 HR. In addition to his stellar offensive numbers, his defense has been nothing short of spectacular. He deserves the vote 100%. 

If you haven't voted yet, I'd encourage you too. It's always nice to have representation at the ASG...
