Ian Kinsler slips out of All-Star starting spot

The final update in All-Star Game balloting before the teams are announced Sunday as been released, and Ian Kinsler is no longer in line to start the Midsummer Classic.
The Rangers' second baseman was overtaken by Robinson Cano of the Yankees. Kinsler's lead last week was only 15,000 votes, and he now trails Cano by some 107,000 votes.
Three Rangers remain in position to start. Josh Hamilton is the runaway leader across baseball with 7,310,824 votes and needs around 155,000 more this week to eclipse the all-time voting record held by Jose Bautista. The Toronto slugger is third in outfield voting this week, one spot and 92,000 votes ahead of Nelson Cruz.

Mike Napoli is comfortably ahead at catcher by more than 1.2 million votes over Matt Wieters, and Adrian Beltre leads Tigers third baseman by some 400,000 votes.
Online voting continues through Thursday.

Good. He's been a bum for months now. IKPU

Kinsler needs to pull his head out! I've never seen anyone who has body language that is as poor as his. He seems like he wants to be anywhere but playing baseball right now - and his play shows it. He is back to his upper cut swing and his fielding is awful.
